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.
