What is Cover Oregon?

Cover Oregon is Oregon's health insurance marketplace where Oregonians can shop for, compare, and purchase insurance coverage, as well as find out if they are eligible for financial assistance to help pay for coverage or if they qualify for OHP/Medicaid. For more information, visit CoverOregon.com

"Fast-track" coverage

There is another option available for some low-income Oregonians. It’s called “fast-track” enrollment. Fast-track enrollment is an easier way for qualified Oregonians to enroll in Cover Oregon.

Fast-track enrollment is available to Oregon residents who:

  1. Meet the qualifications for the Oregon Health Plan, and
  2. Are either enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or have children enrolled in Healthy Kids/OHP.

People eligible for fast-track enrollment do not need to apply for coverage through Cover Oregon or through any other means. They simply send back a completed “fast-track” form and they will be enrolled in OHP. There is also a phone number to call to enroll, but we are asking everyone who has the form to return it rather than call. That will allow us to keep the phone lines open for people who may have misplaced their letter or didn’t receive it.

A website is available with more information. It includes a “Question and Answer” document and copies of the fast-track letters. If people who are eligible for fast-track have questions, you can refer them to this page.

Also, please be aware that there are people receiving SNAP or Healthy Kids who will not qualify for fast-track enrollment. That’s because their income exceeds the limit for the Oregon Health Plan. But through Cover Oregon, there will be financial assistance available to help them buy coverage on the commercial market.
