Frequently Asked Questions
What is CCare?
CCare is a program that is funded by the Centers for Medicaid Services and the Oregon State Department of Human Services through a grant.
This allows Student Health Services to provide reproductive health care and contraceptive services to women and men who meet certain income criteria.
What services will CCare provide?
CCare will pay for contraceptive management office visits including birth control consultations, initiation and follow-up care, a yearly exam, and emergency contraception.
Where can I go for my contraceptives if I am not eligible for CCare?
Labs, X-rays, and prescriptions can be billed to your student account.
Do I have to fill out a new enrollment form if I am renewing CCare?
Yes. Clients must complete a new enrollment form annually. This will enable us to determine if you are still eligible to receive CCare services.
Do I have to have an annual exam to start contraceptives?
No. You do not need to schedule an annual exam to discuss contraception. After your initial office visit, your clinician can determine whether you should have an annual exam.
What is the duration of eligibility for CCare?
Eligibility, once determined, will remain effective for one year (12 months) from the date of initial determination.
Eligibility determined at one site is accepted at all CCare and/or Planned Parenthood clinics in Oregon.
What if I don't qualify for CCare?
If you don't qualify for CCare and you have private insurance, your private insurance will be billed for contraceptive services, supplies and annual exams.
If you do not feel comfortable having your insurance billed, or your insurance does not cover contraceptive services, then a $5 administrative fee will be placed on your student account in addition to any fees for lab work or procedures.
