Enrollment opens for Oregon Health Insurance Marketplace

Twenty Dollar BillThe Oregon Health Insurance Marketplace (OHIM) plans to keep major changes to financial help eligibility with this year’s coverage.

OHIM has announced many eligibility expansions will carry over to health coverage in 2022, subsequently granting enrolled Oregonians large monthly premiums reductions.

In 2021, Marketplace-enrolled Oregonians had a 46% reduction in average monthly premiums after receiving financial assistance.

According to OHIM, increased financial help and eligibility expansions due to the American Rescue Plan caused the average monthly premium to drop to $84 per month.

“We’ve seen Oregonians enroll in health coverage for only $1 per month,” said Chiqui Flowers, administrator of the Oregon Health Insurance Marketplace.

“If you previously applied and didn’t qualify for financial help, now is the time to try again. You will likely see significant savings on quality health coverage for 2022.”

OregonHealthCare.gov/WindowShop offers residents the opportunity to browse plans and determine how much savings they are eligible for.
