Oregon's AIDS Drug Assistance Program is called CAREAssist.
To become a member of CAREAssist, you must:
- Have a confirmed HIV status
- Reside in Oregon
- Currently have medical insurance or be in the process of applying for medical insurance. We can help you with this.
- Have income below 500% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). CAREAssist uses the Federal Poverty Level to determine eligibility based on income. The FPL is based on income and household size. To determine FPL, CAREAssist includes almost all forms of income, including work income/wages/salaries, disability, self-employment income, pension/retirement income, child support and unemployment.
All CAREAssist forms and instructions, including the application and a Client Eligibility Review (CER) form are available on the Forms and Applications page.
