The Oregon Health Plan/Medicaid Orthodontic benefit (braces) has been in effect since January 1, 2023, for OHP Members under 21 years old.
For OHP members:
If you are under 21 years of age and a member of the Oregon Health Plan (OHP), this is a great opportunity to check if you are eligible for braces through Oregon's updated Medicaid program.
