Guiding you on your path to treatment, care, and cure

Tulsa CARES offers client-centered care coordination and linkage to high-quality medical care for persons living with Hepatitis C (HCV). The program uses hands on care coordination, customized action plans and referrals, and direct support to assist individuals on their treatment journey.

We are here to meet you where you are and are committed to helping you achieve your personal and health goals.

Education & Intake

We believe in personal empowerment through education and peer support. Therefore, the first step in the program is an educational session to ensure that clients better understand the virus as well as treatment. At intake, care coordination staff assist linkage to medical care and your treatment plan, including referrals and access to certain Tulsa CARES programs.

Benefits Application and Enrollment

Care coordination staff assist clients with completing necessary paperwork for Medicaid, Medicare, and the Tobacco Tax Program as well as screening and enrollment of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits.

Testing & Linkage to Care

After intake, clients are sent to a local lab partner for testing which helps our providers prescribe the best individualized medication regimen. Thanks to medical advancements, treatment has a 98% cure rate.

HCV Drug Assistance

Tulsa CARES staff and/or partners will work with clients to complete a patient assistance application to cover HCV medication when no other pay source is available. Tulsa CARES also maintains agreements with local pharmacies and offers co-pay assistance to eligible clients.

Food & Nutrition

Tulsa CARES offers a robust food and nutrition program. HCV clients are eligible to participate in bi-monthly meals and Farmers’ Market at no cost. Click here to learn more about our Food & Nutrition program
