Health Care Coverage
You can enroll in the Oregon Health Plan/Medicaid year round!
Find out if you qualify for the Oregon Health Plan/Medicaid by going to oregonhealthcare.gov. and answering a few questions about your household size and income. OHP coverage is now available to people who earn up to $15,800 a year for a single person or $32,500 a year for a family of four.
If you become pregnant and do not have health care coverage, you can apply for OHP right away. There is no longer a requirement to submit ‘proof’ from your doctors!
My Health, My Voice came about because of a need: Newly-insured women are having trouble using their health coverage. There are materials including booklets and fact-sheets about how to use insurance and what you should be able to get with it.
