Free Medical Care for Crime Victims
The Sexual Assault Victims’ Emergency Medical Response (SAVE) Fund makes medical exams available to every victim of sexual assault in Oregon who has a sexual assault exam within seven days of the assault.
If you are a victim of sexual assault the SAVE Fund will pay for:
- The cost of a sexual assault medical exam
- Medications to prevent sexually transmitted diseases
- Up to five days of HIV medication
- Emergency contraception
- Pregnancy test
- Physician fee
- Up to 5 counseling sessions
Applying for the SAVE Fund
Medical providers have SAVE Fund applications on site and will help you complete the short, confidential form. The medical provider will then submit the application, along with a bill, to the Crime Victim and Survivor Services Division.
Proposed SAVE Rule Changes
Please use the links below for information regarding proposed changes to the Oregon Administrative Rules for the SAVE Fund. Please note that the time frame for a complete exam still states 84 hours. Until the time frame is changed in statute we are unable to update the Administrative Rules. We have been and will continue to honor a complete exam up to the National standard of 120 hours post assault as is stated on the SAVE Fund Application Form.
Victims of sexual assault are also encouraged to apply to the Oregon Crime Victims’ Compensation Program.
