Now, more than ever,
you deserve great health care.

Every day, Jackson Care Connect helps Jackson County residents access free health care, including physical, dental, mental health care and prescription drug coverage, through the Oregon Health Plan (OHP).

OHP is Oregon’s Medicaid program. Due to the current coronavirus situation, you and many other people may be eligible for OHP for the first time. We’re here to help you get started.

Health Plan (OHP)?

You might qualify for the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) if:

  • Your income falls below certain levels

Please note:
