2007 Legislative Session
Approximately 17,100 clients receive CAWEM coverage. The CAWEM program
provides limited medical assistance to people who are ineligible for OHP Plus or OHP
Standard coverage solely because they do not meet the Medicaid citizenship or
immigration status requirements.

Now CAWEM is the program for illegal aliens who are to stupid to lie on their Oregon Health Plan application. Either that or they were going into labor as they ran across the border and went straight to the hospital to have their anchor baby and needed the health care coverage after the fact.
And don't worry, the child who was born 2 days after the border crossing will be eligible for OHP without the parent even having to lie.
Even scarier: the Oregon healthy kids plan which will give Cadillac coverage to "all kids" regardless of immigration status.
