The new model works hand-in-hand with the Affordable Care Act (known as ACA or Obamacare).
- Thousands of members are now eligible for the expanded Oregon Health Plan (OHP) Plus.
- Members that have affordable insurance through an employer or their spouse, receive VA benefits, or who are on Medicare, do not need to apply for coverage through the Health Care Exchange.
- The remaining members can get healthcare coverage by signing up for Trust Qualified Health Plans through the Health Care Exchange created by their State Exchange or Healthcare.gov.
- For 2015, the Supplemental Trust provides eligible members on Trust-Approved Qualified Health Plans assistance with their out-of-pocket premium, co-pay, co-insurance and deductible costs. The Benefit Trust offers premium-free dental, vision and Employee Assistance benefits.
