The Compassionate Contraceptive Assistance Program (CCAP) is a program administered by the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC).
The program provides contraception to women who could not otherwise afford it. Selected contraceptives can be obtained at no cost for patients whose financial situation becomes a barrier to obtaining contraceptives.
This program could not be made possible without the generous donations of sponsors and our members.
We are here to support you in providing the best care possible to women in Canada and around the world. That’s why so many health care providers have become members of the SOGC.
The Compassionate Contraceptive Assistant Program (CCAP) is an automated program and intended to be used on a case by case basis, after discussions have been had with a specific patient.
For quality purposes, and to identify action steps to improve contraceptive access in certain areas, you may be asked to submit patient initials, and circumstances.
Most of these medications are covered by Provincial Formularies, NIHB, and private insurance companies. Please ensure you have addressed coverage options with your patient before proceeding.
Due to high volumes, and in attempts for allowance of equitable distribution, products will be made available periodically throughout the month.
We understand there are many counselling challenges and that your time with each patient is limited.
The SOGC has developed an online patient questionnaire – itsaplan.ca– which includes 16 questions about contraceptive preferences, desire for pregnancy, medical history, and pregnancy risk behaviours.
Results will provide patients with contraceptive recommendations and options to avoid. Patients can complete this short questionnaire with you, their health care provider, members of your team, or on their own in preparation for your discussion.
