Yellowhawk Tribal Health Center’s Outstation Outreach Workers (OSOW) are available to navigate insurance options and enrollment. For social security questions please contact the Local Social Security office 877.405.0480.
OSOW’s are responsible for screening patients for Oregon Health Plan/Medicaid. If a patient is eligible for Purchase Referred Care (PRC) this an annual requirement to maintain eligibility. Oregon Health Plan (OHP) is a state medical insurance available to Oregon residents for free. Eligibility is dependent on multiple factors. Our staff can assist patients with applications for Oregon Health Plan/Medicaid or the Federal Marketplace (for those not eligible for Medicaid).
