The Sharing Healthcare Options Program (SHOP) is here to help you sign up for free or low-cost health insurance. Many of our clients qualify for Oregon Health Plan (Oregon’s free Medicaid coverage), but if you are over the income cutoff, SHOP staff can also provide assistance with purchasing private insurance through www.healthcare.gov. We will answer your questions, help you submit your application, and track its progress until you actually have coverage. Program staff also conduct outreach activities and presentations at community venues and events—see our hours below for a partial schedule.
Our hours vary. Call for an appointment, or find us out in the community.
