Sometimes you may have needs that are not covered by your Medicaid benefits. Providence Health Assurance has a fund that the Oregon Health Plan calls Health-Related Services. Health-Related Services are items like temporary lodging, food, and household essentials, as well as cell phones which allow you to stay connected to your care team and providers. These items can be key to your health and may be covered under this fund. Any health care provider can make a request for you. If you think you need access to health-related services, please talk to your Primary Care Provider (PCP).
If you have any questions about health-related services please contact Providence Health Assurance Customer Service at 503-574-8200 or 800-898-8174, TTY:711, or Providence Health Assurance Care Management at 503-574-7427, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
