Need immediate prescription coverage?
The Bridge Program may be able to assist you while you are applying for CAREAssist. Individuals who are not yet members of CAREAssist and need coverage for prescription medications related to their HIV care may be eligible for up to a 30-day supply through the Bridge Program. This program can also assist with medical visits and lab work necessary to determine appropriate HIV treatment regimens.
Need help remembering when to take your medications?
Sign up for Oregon Reminders. This is a free, confidential service where you can set your own reminder to take your medication or refill a prescription.
Want to quit tobacco?
Did you know that Oregonians living with HIV are two times more likely to smoke than adults statewide? CAREAssist members who use tobacco and wish to quit are eligible to receive services from the Oregon Tobacco Quit Line at 1-800-QUIT-NOW. (Spanish Quit Line: www.quitnow.net/oregonsp or 1-855-DEJELO-YA).
CAREAssist members are also eligible for a variety of resources, including prescription medication and nicotine replacement (patches, gum or lozenges) to help you quit. Call the CAREAssist Program if you would like more information about these services.
