LAST DAY OF OPEN ENROLLMENT FOR 2023 HEALTH COVERAGE (BY 1/15)
Jan. 15 is the last day of open enrollment for private health insurance in Oregon’s health insurance marketplace. Open enrollment is the only time when anyone who is not offered insurance from a job or a public program like the Oregon Health Plan or Medicare can enroll in health coverage through OregonHealthCare.gov, often with financial help.
Health insurance covers essential health benefits critical to maintaining individual health and treating illness and accidents. Health insurance helps to reduce medical and prescription drug costs, making health care more affordable and thus more accessible.
For more information, see this How to Get Health Insurance flyer.
We are continuing our school wide diversity unit in each homeroom classroom. In the next two weeks K-8 Scholars will be working on a cumulative project to demonstrate the diversity in their classes and our school community.
