Plan ahead

Step One: Get Ready

  • Pay stubs or W-2 forms from your job.
  • Information about health insurance that you can get through an employer.
  • OHA eligibility notice (Form OHA 640F) that shows you do not qualify for the Oregon Health Plan.
  • If you have a HealthCare.gov account, gather the user name and password. If you were enrolled in a qualified health plan for 2016, you have a Healthcare.gov account.
  • Check if your preferred provider is in the network of the insurance carriers covering your county.

Step Two: Apply for the Oregon Health Plan (OHP)

  • Visit OregonHealthCare.gov to see if you qualify for OHP+. You can also get in-person assistance in any of the upcoming enrollment events listed above.
