Get Insured


Insurance Doesn't Have to Be Scary

Becoming insured helps you get the care you need. If you don’t already have health insurance, we can help you sign up for the Oregon Health Plan.

Following current COVID-19 guidelines, enrollment assistance will be conducted over the phone. Please call us at 503.583.6659  for help with a new application, to check on the status of a submitted application, or to renew your Oregon Health Plan coverage.

Who is eligible

Eligibility for Oregon Health Plan (OHP) is determined by the Oregon Health Authority. If we cannot complete an application, or if you are found to be ineligible, we are happy to sit down and help figure out where you can go to find other coverage possibilities.

Success Stories


As a patient at Outside In, the dignity, compassion, and respect that I was shown by staff truly had a lasting impact on me and directly resulted in me wanting to get involved in helping my community.


Outside In made me want to be around excellence. Outside In shaped me. It taught me how to be kind to people less fortunate.


When I came out as trans and reached out to the community for help, everyone had something good to say about Outside In.


Through these connections I was able to get into school and graduate as a Certified Medical Assistant


Through Outside In’s guidance and support, I was in my own apartment completely self-sufficient within a week.


If you met me today, you might never imagine I spent countless nights sleeping under the Burnside Bridge.


I wanted independence and stability. I wanted to belong. I found Outside In.


Housing at Outside In is so much more than a roof over your head. The staff is helpful and amazing. They were always there for us anticipating our needs. Finally, we weren’t hungry anymore and we were safe.


I feel safe at Outside In. I love Outside In people. How they love us, care for us. The wonderful and fresh food, the health care, the accommodations, the hospitalities. People talking to me, listening to me. Changing lives. It is a great moment.


By the time I was 17, I didn't trust anybody...except Outside In. The staff took my concerns seriously, and took a holistic approach. They protected me.
