Choosing an agent to handle your Cover Oregon application

Dear Insurance Shopper,

With high premiums and high deductibles, getting insurance is about trying to find a balance between coverage that lets you sleep at night and premiums that let you eat during the day. A good agent can assist you all of your options under the law, from using the exchange to helping you purchase insurance privately.

The deadline to enroll in a plan is April 31st. If you have not applied for insurance by then, and you do not meet the strict guidelines for financial hardship, you will be subject to a fine. The fine is 1% of your household income for each adult in your household without qualified coverage.You can avoid the fine by purchasing a qualified health plan either through the exchange or privately. A family of 4 making up to $94,000 is eligible for a tax credit applied directly to your monthly insurance premium. You only pay the difference.
If you do not qualify for a subsidy there are still affordable plans you can get and avoid the penalty. If those are still unaffordable there are other alternatives without the required preventative care, that give you coverage, but may subject you to the penalty. These much less expensive plans, even with the penalty, are generally less expensive than Obamacare plans. Another way to reduce costs is to combine a less expensive Bronze plan with gap insurance.
For a consultation please call our office at 888-244-2805 and one of our exerienced agents will be glad to assist you.

Portland Benefits Group’s Cover Oregon Certified Agents Will Assist You With Health Insurance Plans And Applications From ANY Carrier on Cover Oregon

Obamacare is confusing and if you choose the wrong plan you could be forfeiting thousands of dollars in government assistance. We can help you understand all of your options under the new law, and assist you with the Cover Oregon application process. 

David Taxer Licensed Agent NPN# 16520021, Cover Oregon Agent #1000001853 Will Answer Your Questions. 


As a Cover Oregon Agent I can explain how the ACA works and let you know if tax credits and reduced premiums are available as well as  what Health Insurance will cost both from the health exchange and on the private market. Buying off-exchange means you won’t get cost assistance, however you will have better networks and more qualified health plan varieties to choose from.  

Using a Cover Oregon Agent to enroll

Individuals who intend to file an application with Cover Oregon for medical health insurance should be aware that the application requires accurate assessments of their income to qualify for your tax credit, which is estimated and portioned out so that your monthly premium for your families health insurance is partially paid for each month. An agent can advise you on the size of your tax credit as well as what strategies should be taken to get the best results. Since the tax credit is advanced to you, if you underestimate your income then the IRS may want some of their money back, so I generally recommend overestimating your income at least a little bit. By how much tends to be a case-by-case basis as everyone has a diferent situation.

Applications can be submitted over the telephone, by mail, or eventually online by consumers at A patchwork online application has been released by the State. Instructions and the links are below. For assistance contact David Taxer at PBG. If you do intend to attempt an online application by yourself, here are the instructions from Cover Oregon’s webpage.

Why Use A Cover Oregon Agent

If you are shopping for an individual plan, a licensed health insurance agent can help. Agents can help you compare plans, fill out an insurance company application and assist with claim and billing issues.

How are Agents Paid?

Agents are paid by Cover Oregon. However, the insurance company pays their fee and it is already built into the cost of the premium. That means you don’t pay any more for insurance if you use an agent.
