Oregon - State Insurance and Assistance Programs for Persons with Diabetes
Hock's offers 30-50% discounted prices on diabetes supplies. We cannot specifically recommend or endorse any company but we have been listing Hock's in our resource directory for over a year as one of the two cheapest online companies to purchase from. We recently affiliated with Hock's because our own experience with them has been so positive. If you do place an order through our site, they will contribute financially towards our cause and you will get reasonable prices for diabetes supplies.
State Resources for Obtaining Health Insurance & Prescription Assistance
Oregon Medical Insurance Pool (OMIP) - State Health Insurance - OMIP was established in 1989 by the Legislature to provide health insurance to residents of Oregon that have been denied individual health coverage from private sources due pre-existing medical conditions. OMIP provides health coverage in certain circumstances when an individual exhausts or is unable to obtain COBRA or health insurance portability coverage (HIPA), and for individuals who are eligible for a health coverage tax credit through the federal government. Phone (503) 373-1692
Oregon Health Plan (Medicaid) - A health insurance program for residents of all ages, including children and pregnant women.
Oregon Department of Human Services - Assistance programs
Family Health Insurance Assistance Program (FHIAP) - FHIAP is a subsidy program that helps families pay for health insurance premiums (monthly cost). FHIAP does not pay for office visit copays or deductibles. Both individuals (those who can't get insurance through their job) and group members (those who can get insurance through their work) are eligible to apply.
Oregon Prescription Drug Program (OPDP) - FREE Enrollment! ALL Oregonians can now join and save up to 60% on prescription drugs with the highest discount on generics. There is no paperwork required and no age or income limit. Easy enroll online.
Oregon Senior Prescription Drug Assistance Program (SPDAP) - This program charges participants a non-refundable $50 fee each year. SPDAP
began before Medicare Part D went into effect.
Since then, the Legislature also approved the new FREE Oregon Prescription
Drug Program. The Senior Prescription Drug Assistance Program (SPDAP) allows members of the
program to purchase prescription drugs from participating pharmacies at the
State Medicaid rate. The SPDAP is administered by the DHS Office of
Medical Assistance Programs (OMAP). However, it is not a Medicaid
program, and SPDAP members are not Medicaid clients.
