Outreach and Enrollment Network
Outreach and Enrollment
Outreach and Enrollment Workers (OEWs) at Oregon’s federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) help people in rural and urban communities enroll in public medical programs and Qualified Health Plans. OEWs also inform Oregonians about their insurance benefits and provide referrals to other community or state services, such as food stamps, TANF and housing assistance.
About the network
The OPCA OEW Network offers technical support and resources to its member FQHCs and acts as liaisons between health centers and state or community partner organizations.
Through in person meetings, webinars, and phone calls, OPCA brings OEWs together from across the state to connect with peers and community partners partners to discuss barriers, successes and strategies in assisting Oregonians enroll and use the health care benefits they are found eligible for. OPCA also provides training opportunities for health literacy, patient engagement, cultural agility, and best practices to support Oregon OEW efforts in improving health care access to their communities.
If you would like to join our OEW Network, please contact the OPCA Outreach & Enrollment Coordinator Stephanie Castano and subscribe to our e-newsletter.
