If U.S. lawmakers fail to reach a debt ceiling agreement in time to avoid a government default — something that could happen as soon as June 1 — millions of Americans might see disruptions to their health insurance coverage.

One of the main impacts of a default would be felt by Americans who receive government-run health insurance from programs like Medicare and Medicaid.

Early numbers show nearly 70% of Oregonians keep Oregon Health Plan benefits in first round of renewals

SALEM, Ore. (KTVZ) – The Oregon Health Authority and Oregon Department of Human Services are committed to transparency and will be sending monthly information about medical coverage among Oregonians as the agencies continue to track the state’s progress in determining eligibility for medical programs.


When the COVID-19 pandemic began, the federal government allowed states to keep people on Medicaid once they became eligible and did not require annual eligibility renewals. During this historic health emergency, the Oregon Health Plan (OHP), Oregon’s Medicaid program, grew to nearly 1.5 million people.

In April, Oregon began the process of redetermining eligibility for everyone on OHP.  While most people will continue to qualify for existing benefits, OHA is required to review eligibility for all OHP and Medicare Savings Program (MSP) members by mid-2024.

Although early retirement is a goal for many Americans, fewer than 1% retire before the age of 50, according to a LIMRA study published in 2015. Perhaps somewhat more realistically, a 2023 EBRI/Greenwald Research Retirement Confidence Survey found that 20% of workers say they plan to retire between the ages of 60 and 64.

Christine Simone is the CEO & co-founder of Caribou, a software solution for the finance industry to include health care costs and plan optimization for financial plans.

One problem with making good on the dream of early retirement is that while Social Security allows individuals to retire — or begin drawing government retirement benefits — at age 62.5, financial advisors commonly define early retirement as any age before 65 — the year at which individuals qualify for Medicare benefits, leaving a potential gap in how to mitigate financial risks related to health care costs.
