Did you know? All children and teens in Oregon qualify for full health coverage under the Oregon Health Plan!

The Oregon Health Plan (OHP) is open to all children and teens younger than 19 regardless of immigration status who meet income and other criteria. This includes children and teens:

• With Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and those previously only eligible for emergency OHP (i.e. CAWEM)

• Who live in families that earn up to 305% of the federal poverty level. As an example, in 2019, children and teens living in a family of four that earns up to $6,545 a month qualify.

OHP is free health coverage that covers the health care services children and teens need to thrive including, but not limited to: check-ups, vaccinations, mental health care, tooth fillings, glasses and prescriptions. It also covers labs, x-rays and hospital care. It even pays for rides to and from medical appointments.

Unidos Bridging Community now has staff that can help children, teens and their families with the application and enrollment process. She can also assist with health system navigation support such as making changes to an OHP case or checking the status of a case. The help is free and available in English and Spanish.

To receive assistance for OHP enrollment and system navigation, contact Alejandra Cortes at 971-312-1723 or
