Emergency Contraception

EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION (EC) FOR SEXUAL-ASSAULT SURVIVORS

Oregon law ensures that sexual-assault survivors receive access to emergency contraception (EC) in hospital emergency rooms.  As part of the minimum standards for the examination and treatment of a sexual-assault survivor, a physician or other health-care provider must provide a woman with medically and factually accurate written and oral information about EC, offer her EC, and provide EC upon request.

Or. Rev. Stat. § 435.252-.256 (Enacted 2007).

Oregon law establishes the Sexual Assault Victims' Emergency Medical Response Fund. The fund pays for sexual-assault survivors' medical assessments, which include the offering and provision of EC upon request.

Or. Rev. Stat. § 147.005 (Enacted 2003); Or. Admin. R. § 137-084-0001, -0010, -0020.

MEDICAID COVERAGE OF EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION (EC)

Oregon provides Medicaid coverage of emergency contraception without a prescription.
