Healthy Kids: For a healthy Oregon


I just applied for Healthy Kids. Who will contact me and when?

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) processes the applications and should contact you within 45 days from the date you requested and/or submitted your application.

If you do not receive anything after 45 days, please call the OHP Statewide Processing Center at 1.800.699.9075 to inquire about the status of your application.

My children are now enrolled in Healthy Kids. Who do I contact if I have questions about what services are covered or how to find a doctor?

Please call OHP Client Services at 1.800.273.0557

Which medical providers are under the Healthy Kids plan and what benefits are included?

All children enrolled in the plan will have a health coverage card and will gain access to services from the provider network on the plan for which they are enrolled. The Oregon Health Plan Handbook lists providers and benefits.

Do I have to be unemployed for my children to get Healthy Kids?

No. Eligibility is based on age, residency and income. The child or teen must be under the age of 19, live in Oregon and be a legal resident. Family income will determine if a child qualifies for coverage.

How long does coverage last and can I reapply?

Coverage lasts for one full year. When it is time for you to reapply, you should receive a letter in the mail. If you have not received a letter please call 1-800-273-0557.

What happens when my child turns 19?

Before your child's 19th birthday, have your child fill out an application.

What if I’m pregnant?

Pregnant women who are eligible for the Oregon Health Plan (women who make no more than $20,000 per year as an individual and up to $40,000 as a family of four) may be eligible for coverage that extends through their pregnancy and the following 2 months after birth. Their expected child may also be eligible for automatic coverage beginning at birth.
