Did you receive an OHP termination notice in January?

If you got a letter that your Oregon Health Plan benefits would be terminated as of January 31, you should contact the Public Benefits Hotline at 800-520-5292. They can provide information and representation to low income people living in Oregon about Oregon Health Plan benefits and are looking into preventing people from losing their benefits. They would like to hear from people who are impacted, especially if your mental health treatment will be affected.

Statement from Oregon Law Center:

OREGON HEALTH PLAN. 67,000 Oregonians were recently sent letters telling them their Oregon Health Plan coverage (or their citizen child’s OHP coverage) will end soon, because they didn’t take steps to renew their OHP application. We understand that some of the people who received those letters actually tried to renew their application by phone, by the federal healthcare.gov website, or in other ways. We also understand that some people didn’t respond to their letter because it was written in a language they don’t speak. People in this situation can contact their local Oregon Law Center or Legal Aid Services of Oregon office, or call our Public Benefits Hotline at 1-800-520-5292 for more information.

 

PLAN DE SALUD DE OREGON. Hace poco, 67,000 residentes de Oregon recibieron cartas avisándoles que su cobertura del Plan de Salud de Oregon (OHP) (o la cobertura del OHP de sus hijos ciudadanos) pronto será terminada, porque no tomaron los pasos necesarios para renovar su solicitud de participación en el OHP. Tenemos entendido que algunas personas que recibieron dichas cartas de hecho habían intentado renovar sus solicitudes por teléfono, por el sitio de internet federal healthcare.gov, o por otros medios. Tenemos entendido además que algunas personas no contestaron sus cartas porque fueron escritas en un idioma que esas personas no hablan. Las personas que se encuentran en esta situación pueden solicitar más información en su sucursal local del Centro de Leyes de Oregon o Servicios de Asistencia Legal de Oregon, o acudir a nuestra Línea de Ayuda Sobre Beneficios Públicos, 1-800-520-5292.
