Oregon Health Plan (OHP) Bridge Overview

Jun 28, 2024, 22:56 PM

We are excited to announce that CareOregon is participating in the Oregon Health Authority’s (OHA) implementation of the OHP Bridge. Please take a look below for the details you need to know.

What is changing?

Starting July 1, 2024, CareOregon is taking part in the implementation of OHA’s CCO-administered OHP Bridge program.

OHP Bridge will expand access to affordable health coverage to approximately 100,000 Oregon residents that meet the eligibility criteria statewide.

The program is a permanent extension of the existing, temporary version that began on May 1,2023, known as, “Temporary Medicaid Expansion,” or TME.

Why is this happening and why is this change important?

CareOregon strongly believes that by making individuals and families healthier, we make entire communities healthier, too.

OHP Bridge supports this mission by providing quality, affordable health insurance coverage to adults who typically wouldn’t qualify and by providing continued care to those most likely to churn (i.e., fall in and out of health coverage due to frequent income changes).

What is not changing?

There is no change in the expectations CareOregon has of our network partners in the level of care and quality of care that is delivered to our members, regardless of category of aid, coverage, or program.

For questions, please contact Provider Customer Service at 800.224.4840.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to our members.
