‘Cover Oregon’ Conducts Application Fair in Medford Tomorrow
In an effort to increase application activity for ‘Cover Oregon’, the state’s health insurance exchange, application fairs are being staged to enable people to get secure insurance starting January 1st. The Medford session is Wednesday from noon to 8 p.m. in the Ramada Hotel and Conference Center on Biddle Road near the north Interstate 5 exit.
Unable to get the kinks out of its automated online system, ‘Cover Oregon’ is visiting Medford, Eugene, Bend, Salem and Portland in the days leading up to Thanksgiving.
Participants will need to bring birth dates, employer and income information, alimony paid, student loan interest paid, educator expenses, IRA contributions, and higher education tuition fees.
They are also asking for a list of self-employment deductions, present health insurance policy numbers and plan names and health coverage available through the participant’s employer.
