Oregonians Have Until April 30 to Apply for Private Health Insurance

Oregonians now have an additional month to apply for private health insurance. The new deadline to apply is April 30. This gives people who have not yet applied for insurance through Cover Oregon more time. More time to apply. More time to find out what financial assistance they may qualify for. More time to get covered.

As of April 3, there have been more than 200,000 enrollments through Cover Oregon. And right now, certified Cover Oregon partner organizations, like Community Services Consortium (CSC), are working hard to spread the word and help individuals and families get the health insurance they need.

Right now, CSC can help Oregonians apply and enroll in health insurance free of charge. Partners and agents can enroll people online, and oftentimes in one meeting, making the process faster and easier than before. Individuals and families in Lincoln County can make an appointment with CSC today.

Oregonians who are eligible for the Oregon Health Plan or Healthy Kids can apply for coverage year round.
