In general, the following items are all we need to get you set up as a new patient. Please be sure to arrive at least 30 minutes before your first scheduled appointment to allow time for paperwork.

We will be adding updated copies of these forms to our website soon.

No, Variety Care is a non-profit community health center and charges a fee for services. Variety Care's mission is "making quality health care affordable and accessible" and, in addition to affordable rates, we offer many programs and partnerships that can help patients access the care they need. Variety Care offers a sliding fee scale to uninsured patients which adjusts fees for many services based on their household size and income. We accept Medicaid/SoonerCare, Medicare, and most private insurances.
Insured patients pay according to their co-pays and deductibles. Uninsured patients who qualify and provide all required documents pay according to a sliding fee scale that adjusts fees based on your household income and number of family members living in the home. The sliding scale determines the amount of your office visit.
Yes, we can work with you on payment arrangements. Please note that prepayment in full is required for services including dentures, root canals, crowns, and eye glass frames and lenses. Prepayment in full is also required on most procedures, such as vasectomies. Other services and procedures may also require prepayment in full.
If you have insurance that doesn’t cover much or insurance with a high deductible, you may qualify to pay on the sliding-fee scale after we file with your insurance company.
Our Open Access services are available to new and established Variety Care patients and offer extended hours and weekend hours.
In addition, established patients of Variety Care at Straka Terrace, 10th Street, N. Portland and all rural locations can be seen on a walk in basis pending availability. New patients to the health center must first schedule a new patient appointment by calling (405) 632-6688. After an initial new patient appointment, then the patient can be seen on a walk-in basis. We will see new patients based on urgency and availability. Please call (405) 632-6688 for appointment times.
Patients with insurance coverage generally do not pay out of pocket for immunizations - however, coverage varies and we recommend you call your insurance provider to verify coverage.
Patients without insurance who qualify for the sliding scale and have provided all required paperwork receive immunizations at no cost to them. If you do not qualify for the sliding scale for any reason (for example, if your income is too high or you cannot provide all required documentation), a $15 administration fee will apply for each immunization provided. This fee may vary in special situations - ask your provider for more information.
Please note: If you are bringing your child in for an office visit, fees for immunizations are in addition to the fee for an office visit.
Yes. We have on-site laboratories for testing at all health center sites. Some lab tests require that samples we collect be sent to them for test results. In those cases, we work with a local laboratory provider. Lab tests fees are usually eligible for the sliding fee scale, but consideration and exclusions do apply.
We offer x-rays on-site at our Straka Terrace location. If you see a provider at another Variety Care location, they can provide a referral for an x-ray at Straka Terrace if necessary.
We also offer ultrasound services at Straka Terrace.
No, we do not offer free cleaning of teeth. If you have dental insurance that we accept, we will file a claim with your dental insurance company and you will be responsible for any fees they do not cover. If you do not have dental insurance, the fees for service are based on your household income and number of family members living in the home.
Typically, we do not extract or provide fillings on the first visit. After an evaluation and x-rays, the dentist will develop a treatment plan covering any necessary procedures.
Variety Care has access to many programs and partnerships that may apply to your situation. For example, we offer the Patient Assistance Program for patients who qualify based on income to receive certain medications at no charge. Other medications can be purchased at a discounted rate through our Pharmacy Program.
Yes, Variety Care offers testing and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases by regular appointment. You may also come by one of our walk in, same day locations for testing and to begin treatment. We also offer periodic free HIV testing - see below.
Please note: Variety Care at Educare does not offer STD/STI/HIV testing.
HIV testing is available at no cost every 3rd Thursday at Variety Care Straka Terrace Open Access from 4pm to 7pm. Testing is confidential and available on a first come, first served basis. You do not need to bring any documents with you to take advantage of this no cost service and there is no paperwork for you to fill out. Simply check-in with the Straka Terrace Open Access receptionist on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 4pm to 7pm.
