EUGENE, Ore. — Starting this week, the state is opening the Oregon Health Plan to more adults as allowed by federal health reform.
About 260,000 Oregonians will get a fast-track enrollment form in the mail. Those who received a packet have already qualified for OHP and don’t need to apply through Cover Oregon. Eligibility is based on income level.
Those who return the forms will be enrolled for health care coverage starting January 1, 2014.
