Health Insurance

If you have had a change in your employment, you may qualify for free health coverage through the Oregon Health Plan (OHP). Eligibility for the OHP is based on monthly income and other requirements. That means you may qualify for OHP now, even if you have been denied in the past. The best way to see if you qualify is to apply, www.OHP.Oregon.gov 

To Apply Apply for the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) online at https://one.oregon.gov/ 

If you need help: Trained community partners across the state can help you fill out an application. It's free. Visit www.OregonHealthCare.gov to find community partners in your area.

All members who are currently enrolled in the Oregon Health Plan will not lose coverage during this crisis. This includes coverage that is only state-funded (i.e. Cover all Kids). Individuals can sign up for OHP without having to verify their income (submit a pay stub) with their application. They will be able to self-attest, which will help Oregonians get access to OHP coverage more quickly.

Uninsured Oregonians who were not able to sign up for private health coverage due to COVID-19 can still enroll. www.HealthCare.gov has made it easier for uninsured consumers to enroll in coverage through its existing national emergency or major disaster exceptional circumstances special enrollment period (SEP), also known as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) SEP. Applications are being accepted at www.HealthCare.gov if the life change is a loss in coverage and at 800-318-2596 (toll-free) for all other life changes.

White Bird is now assisting folks with stimulus check payments, food stamp

sign up, SSI/SSDI, and OHP.  541-816-2793, Mon - Fri 9 am - 5 pm

Things you can do to support yourself and decrease stress and anxiety:

-Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.

-Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep.

-Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.

-Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling. Setting up video conferencing with friends and family where we are all on at one time to socialize and gather can be helpful.

-Going outside and practicing social distancing - take advantage of good weather.

Resilience tips from Oregon Health & Science University Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellows:

Remember, children follow the lead of their parents. They look to you to see if they should be afraid, concerned, confident, calm or carefree. You can set the stage for their response to be concerned and confident by taking a moment to check in with yourself before you check in with them.

Consistency and structure can help establish a sense of normalcy and be calming:

-Try to establish a simple routine for your family in 60- or 90-minute chunks.

-Get your children involved in the planning process to give them a sense of control.

Physical activity has been shown to combat symptoms of anxiety and depression:

-Taking regular breaks to go outside for fresh air and exercise is great for mental health.

-Look for free online resources for youth-focused at-home workouts

Relearn how to be present with your family:

-Being present and available for your family can be the best way to support and help during this stressful time.

-Consider working on tasks or projects alongside your children and set aside time to offer your family your full and undivided attention.

Maintain technologic well-being:

-The key to healthy screen use is awareness and open conversations with your children.

-Consume news judiciously from reputable journalism organizations, such as the Oregon Health Authority or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

-Participate in technology alongside your children, for example by engaging with them via social media apps or video games they frequently use.
