An important part of our mission is working to ensure everyone who qualifies is enrolled in and able to use their health insurance. In January of 2015, a pilot program was started to provide health insurance enrollment services and outreach to families qualified for Medicaid, or in Oregon, Oregon Health Plan (OHP).

The pilot eventually became Project Access NOW’s Outreach, Enrollment, and Access program (OEA). The OEA team of certified application assisters helps families and individuals enroll in Oregon Health Plan and Health Insurance Marketplace plans via phone and online.

Outreach, Enrollment & Access (OEA) Program brings Spanish-language access and information to the community.

Recently, Katia Ariceaga, OEA Program Manager joined a Facebook live session with the group Somos Tigard/ We are Tigard (on Facebook at @CityofTigard and @SomosTigard) to discuss health insurance access in Oregon. This virtual event represents an important component of the work of Project Access NOW. At PANOW, we advocate for access for the immigrant, refugee, and non-English-speaking community in Oregon. In fact, of the eleven OEA team members, eight were born outside the U.S.

Latinx organizations urge for health and safety measures to protect essential workers.

The Oregon Latino Health Coalition, El Programa Hispano Católico, Familias en Acción, Latino Network, and Centro Cultural have teamed up to protect vulnerable members of the Latino community. The coronavirus pandemic has brought to light deplorable living and working conditions that seasonal and migrant farmworkers have to endure. The group is calling for state and local authorities, and agricultural business owners, to enact immediate health safety measures to protect these essential workers and their families. The organizations are working closely to ensure the Latino community is heard and that true, impactful investments in public health are made for ALL communities in the state.
