Reaching Uninsured Children Through Oregon Public Schools



Your child can have no-cost or low-cost health coverage.

Multnomah ESD can help!

We are having two sign up events at the Kaiser Rockwood Clinic to assist families with the Cover Oregon application for US citizens and Permanent Residents and with the Kaiser Child Health Program application for undocumented children. Both events will take place at:

Kaiser Rockwood Clinic, 19500 SE Stark St. in Portland
Conference room 1-A, next to the Pharmacy

Tuesday, April 15, 2 - 4 p.m.

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2 - 4 p.m.

Please bring the family pay stubs for March and April. If you have any questions, please call Delia at 503.257.1746

Este es un mensaje para el Distrito Escolar de Reynolds. Si su familia tiene hijos o adultos que NO tienen aseguranza de salud, ruego pongan atención a este mensaje. Vamos a tener dos eventos para ayudarles a completar la aplicación de Cover Oregon para niños y adultos Americanos y Residentes Permanentes y la de Kaiser para estudiantes que No son Americanos ni Residentes Permanentes.

Los eventos se celebrarán en la clinica de Kaiser en Rockwood, localizada en 19500 SE Stark St. en Portland, el martes, 15 de Abril y el miércoles, 23 de Abril, en la sala 1-A al lado de la farmacia, de 2 a 4 de la tarde.

Ruego que traigan comprobantes de ingresos de la familia del mes de Marzo y lo que tengan de Abril. Si tienen preguntas, pueden llamar a Delia en el 503.257.1746.

Healthy children learn better; and a better education makes for a brighter future. MESD's Child Health Insurance Access Program (CHIAP) offers enrollment and follow-up to families with children who need health coverage. 

Any school nurse or community partner can refer an uninsured student to the Outreach Office at MESD by fax (503-257-1779) or by using the online form.

Outreach Eligibility Specialists will contact families to discuss options for one of the several no-cost or low-cost health coverage programs available to children in Multnomah County. 

Specialists will guide families through the entire application process. Families are also informed about how to access health care through their insurance program.

                  HEALTH INSURANCE UPDATE - 2013-14

What has changed?

Cover Oregon

Cover Oregon is a new online marketplace, where uninsured Americans will be able to shop for health insurance plans and access financial assistance to help pay for coverage.

October 1st, 2013 is the target date that uninsured family members can compare different health plan benefits and costs with a January 1st, 2014, as effective date of coverage.

The MESD Outreach and Eligibility specialists ALSO will be available to assist families completing online Cover Oregon applications.
