If you are an individual or employer and would like assistance in selecting a plan, we recommend a local area insurance broker Willamette Valley Benefits. They have assisted our patients for many years and can be reached at 503.659.5566 or www.wvbenefits.com. Their office is located at 6400 SE Lake Road, #155, Milwaukie, OR 97222.
In Oregon, brokers are paid by the insurance company for their services. There is no cost to patients (Patients pay the same monthly premium whether they sign up on the Cover Oregon Insurance exchange or utilize a broker.) Many insurance plans also offer additional plan offerings through their own private insurance exchanges which a broker can access. In some cases these can offer benefits that meet individual needs beyond the standard plans offered through Cover Oregon.
Tax credits are available to individual members and their families to reduce their monthly premium expense. Tax credits are only available if coverage is purchased through Cover Oregon by signing up online, through a broker or with a Cover Oregon community partner.
Patients who are newly OHP eligible can call FamilyCare Patient Services at 503.222.2880 to learn about the coordinated services they can receive (i.e. medical care, dental care and mental health care.) If they want to enroll, Familycare will direct them to Cover Oregon for enrollment at 1.855.CoverOR.
