If you don’t qualify for the Oregon Health Plan and don’t get health insurance through your job, now through Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022, is an important time. It’s the only time of year most people can sign up for an individual or family plan to have coverage in 2022.
Get started by visiting the Oregon Health Insurance Marketplace Window Shopping tool at OregonHealthCare.gov/WindowShop. The tool will allow you to preview programs, plans, and savings available to you; what plans will cover your current doctor; and how much your anticipated costs will be, including refilling your prescriptions.
The Oregon Health Insurance Marketplace helps connect Oregonians to health coverage and financial help through its federal partners at HealthCare.gov. It’s the only place where you can get financial help on monthly premiums and other out-of-pocket costs. More than 75 percent of Oregonians enrolled through the Marketplace in 2021 qualified for financial help – that could be you, too!
Health insurance sold through the Marketplace is individual and family coverage offered by private companies you already know, such as Bridgespan, Kaiser Permanente, Moda, PacificSource, Providence, and Regence. Not every company is available in every part the state, but at least four insurance companies and at least 26 plan choices are available everywhere in Oregon.
If you are not currently enrolled through the Marketplace, you must sign up by Dec. 15, 2021 for coverage starting Jan. 1, 2022.
Want help? A health insurance expert can help you, at no cost, apply for financial help and enroll in coverage. You can find an expert near you at OregonHealthCare.gov/GetHelp.
