Tens of thousands of people in Central Oregon could soon find they no longer qualify for Oregon Health Plan coverage as the state begins checking their eligibility based on new income levels for 2023.

Starting April 1, the state will start sending out notices to Central Oregonians whose eligibility will be reevaluated, a process that will take place on a monthly basis through May 2024. Once notified, Oregon Health Plan members will have to reply with updated information within 90 days, and depending on their eligibility will be reenrolled, or dropped from state coverage within 60 days. Those who are dropped will have to search for a new plan.
