Spread the word: “Send the fast-track back!”

11/21/2013 9:43:52 AM

Do you know someone who received the fast-track letter but hasn’t sent it back? This week the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is mailing a reminder notice to Oregonians who qualify for fast-track enrollment.

If you know someone who receives the letter, please urge them to “send the fast-track back.”

So far, about 70,000 Oregonians have already taken advantage of the fast-track option and will be enrolled in health care coverage beginning January 1, 2014. But we know there are more people who qualify. That’s why we are sending out about 177,000 reminder notices this week.

You can see a copy of the reminder letter and a fast-track fact sheet at Also attached are fliers that you can use to spread the word about fast-track enrollment.

How to enroll

Fast-track eligible Oregonians do not have to fill out an application through Cover Oregon. All they have to do is “send the fast-track back” in the self-addressed stamped envelope. It’s the easiest and fastest way to get enrolled.

If people prefer to call, they can enroll at 1-800-699-9075. When they call, they should have their letter with them. They will be asked for their case number or client ID printed at the top of their letter.

Fast-track enrollment is available to adult Oregonians who meet qualifications for the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) and who already qualify for either food benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or health care benefits for children through Healthy Kids/OHP.

Coverage starts January 1, 2014.
