Summary of payment program 

Billing

In the state of Oregon, the Sexual Assault Victim Emergency Medical Response (SAVE) fund, administered by the Oregon Department of Justice, Crime Victims' Assistance Section (CVAS), pays for any of or all the elements of a "Complete" Medical Assessment, which includes the collection of forensic evidence and must be conducted within 120 hours from the of the assault; and for any of or all the elements of a "Partial" Medical Assessment which does not include the collection of forensic evidence and must be conducted within 7 days of the assault.

Additionally, survivors DO NOT need to report the assault to law enforcement in order to access the fund. The exam may or may not include evidence collection, sexually transmitted infection (STI) prophylaxis and/or emergency contraception. A confidential, one page form will be completed at the medical facility and submitted by the medical facility for payment.

Coordination with healthcare

According to Oregon state law, any licensed medical professional may document and collect forensic evidence of a sexual assault (commonly referred to as a "rape kit"), as long as this is within their scope of practice for that licensure. However, specially-trained and certified Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners are available at many hospital emergency departments to provide these services and support in a compassionate and trauma-informed manner. The patient has the option of reporting the sexual assault to law enforcement from the hospital, but they are NOT required to report to law enforcement in order to receive medical treatment or advocacy services.
