About applying for the Oregon Health Plan

Here you can apply for the Oregon Health Plan (OHP). OHP is Oregon’s Medicaid program that offers free or low-cost health coverage for individuals and families who qualify. You can apply for OHP at any time. There is no “open enrollment” period for OHP.

If you don’t qualify for OHP, we’ll securely send your application information to HealthCare.gov. At HealthCare.gov, you can shop and enroll in a private health insurance plan. You may also qualify for tax credits to help pay for your private health insurance plan.

What you need to apply

To complete the application, you will need this information for everyone who wants coverage:
  • Birthdate
  • Social Security number (for those who have one)
  • Income and deduction information (for example, from pay stubs)
  • Immigration documentation (if applicable)
  • Information about health insurance available to you through an employer

The information you provide about household size and income (along with other factors) will be used to figure out if your household qualifies for OHP. If you do not qualify for OHP, we will securely send your application to HealthCare.gov, where you can shop and enroll in a private health insurance plan. You may also qualify for tax credits to help pay for your private health insurance plan.
