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.
Licensed Canadian physicians can create an account with the CCAP. Once they have done so, they will be able to order from a list of available contraceptives on behalf of their patient. Only one order can be placed per patient at a time. In the event that a patient continues to meet the program’s criteria at the end of the supply provided, the prescribing physician may resubmit an order. Orders must be placed on a case-by-case basis.
When creating an order, the prescribing physician will provide a delivery address for the product. Contraception is a prescription medication therefore orders can only be shipped directly to the prescribing physician at a location where he/she will be available to distribute the product to the patient. Deliveries will be addressed to the prescribing physician. Please allow 4-6 weeks for product delivery.
Once an order has been placed, a receipt will be issued and available to print or save as a PDF for the physician’s records. To ensure patient confidentiality, a tracking number will be assigned and noted on the receipt. CCAP is a confidential service and no patient information is required to submit an order. It is the physician’s/clinic’s responsibility to keep track of the orders and the intended recipients.
Please ensure you have addressed coverage options with your patient as most medications are covered by Provincial Formularies, NIHB, and the majority of private insurance companies.
