About Cover Oregon
Cover Oregon is a new online marketplace where Oregonians can choose from different health insurance carriers and plans that fit their needs and budget, and find saving to help pay for coverage. Cover Oregon provides clear information on a range of insurance plans so individuals, families and small businesses can make side-by-side comparisons and choose the right plan for them. It includes health insurance from both private companies and public medical programs such as Oregon Health Plan and Healthy Kids, for easy, one-stop shopping. Many people—for example, an individual earning up to $45,900 a year and a family of four earning up to $94,000 a year—will qualify for financial help. Enrollment begins October 1, when customers will be directed to a community partner or agent who can help them enroll at no cost. To be sure you’re working with a certified agent or partner, visit CoverOregon.com or call 1-855-CoverOR (toll free 1-855-268-3767).
