Do I qualify for the Oregon Health Plan?
You might! To qualify for the Oregon Health Plan (OHP), individuals and families must meet income and residency requirements. Oregonians may also qualify based on age and disability status.
Adults: OHP is available to adults who earn up to 138 percent of the Federal Poverty Level. That's about $16,100 a year for a single person or $32,900 a year for a family of four.
Children: OHP is available to kids and teens (0-18) whose family earns up to 300 percent of the Federal Poverty Level. That's about $46,600 a year for a family of two or $82,000 a year for a family of five.
Make and appointment with a member of our enrollment staff to find out if you qualify or start the enrollment process!
