Oregon is using a Federally Facilitated Marketplace where Oregonians can compare plans and enroll in medical and dental insurance, according to their needs and budget. You may qualify for instant savings or have access to financial assistance that could help reduce the cost of insurance. You could also qualify for no-cost plans like the Oregon Health Plan and Healthy Kids, even if you have been denied for coverage in the past or have pre-existing conditions.

Types of Coverage Available

There are two types of coverage available: private health insurance through HealthCare.gov and free or low-cost Oregon Health Plan or Healthy Kids coverage. All Oregonians can apply, and no one can be denied coverage because of a pre-existing health condition.

Private health plans

All Oregon private plans available through HealthCare.gov include comprehensive health benefits and have been certified by the Oregon Insurance Division. Most people who qualify for private health insurance will also qualify for a tax credit to help pay for coverage.

Oregon Health Plan and Healthy Kids

Free or low-cost coverage is available to people who meet requirements for income, household size and other factors. Coverage through the Oregon Health Plan and Healthy Kids includes doctor visits, hospital care, mental health services and more.

To qualify for assistance, you must be an Oregon resident and a U.S. citizen or legal immigrant

To see what you might qualify for, use the chart below. First, find the number of people in your household in the left column. Then, look at the income limits* in that row. If your household income is below one of the income limits in that row, you may qualify for that type of coverage and financial assistance.

*The income limits listed for each household size are estimates. You must submit an application to find out if you qualify for financial assistance.
