How to Become a CCare Provider
The OregonContraceptiveCare Program (CCare) is a Medicaid waiver demonstration project approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The project provides contraceptive management services to eligible men and women with family incomes up to 250% of the Federal Poverty Level through a contract network of qualified family planning clinic providers. Contraceptive management services are specific to initiating or obtaining a contraceptive method and maintaining effective use of that method.
To become a CCare provider, you must also offer these same services to Oregon Health Plan (OHP) clients and be enrolled as a provider with both CCare and OHP.
To start the enrollment process:
- Read through the Prospective Provider Packet (pdf) to determine if your clinic can comply with CCare program requirements. Included is an overview of program requirements, questions to consider before enrolling, the CCare Standards of Care, information about supplies, links to the program manual, and other important information and resources.
- Contact the CCare Provider Liaison at 971-673-0227 for enrollment information and forms.
- Download and read through our Program Manual and Administrative Rules.
