Help available to re-apply for Oregon Health Plan

06.17.2014 Ron Karten Health & Wellness

In October 2013, the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) sent out a one-page application to sign up for health benefits called "Fast Track."

Any recipient on SNAP (food stamps) received a Fast Track letter. All OHP members who qualified for coverage through Fast Track must re-apply within the first year of coverage or risk losing coverage. If it has not been a full year, you still need to reapply to continue receiving health benefits.

In July, the Oregon Health Authority will begin sending letters to Oregonians who received the Oregon Health Plan through Fast Track explaining the re-application process. The Grand Ronde Health and Wellness Center Community Partners want to help Tribal members and community members make sure they retain their health coverage.  If you do not re-apply, you will lose your health benefits through OHP.

Please give us a call for information and assistance.
