Sharing Healthcare Options Program

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.

You can enroll in or change 2018 Marketplace health insurance right now. The 2018 Open Enrollment Period runs from November 1, 2017 to December 15, 2017. It’s important to act quickly. If you don’t act by December 15, you can’t get 2018 coverage unless you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. Plans sold during Open Enrollment start January 1, 2018.

  • November 1, 2017: Open Enrollment started — first day to enroll, re-enroll, or change a 2018 insurance plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace
  • December 15, 2017: Last day to enroll in or change plans for 2018 coverage. After this date, you can enroll or change plans only if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.
  • January 1, 2018: 2018 coverage starts, if premium paid
