OFFICE CLOSURE
Effective August 9, 2021

Due to the compromised immune systems of some of our consumers and the widespread health issues caused by the Coronavirus, HASL has decided to close our lobby for walk-in information and referral, in-office appointments, and our durable medical equipment loan program.

We can be reached by telephone for assistance at 541-479-4275 Monday – Thursday from 9:00AM-3:00PM. We are closed on Friday and holidays.

If you already have an appointment scheduled in our office, we will be making phone calls to set up a phone appointment to assist you the best we can during the lobby closure.

Contactless delivery and pick-up of durable medical equipment is available Monday – Thursday from 11:30AM-3:30PM. Please call the front desk for more information.

We are sorry if this causes you any undue stress, but we care about our consumer’s health as well as the health of our staff members.

Thank you

“Nothing About Us Without Us!”

This slogan is used to communicate the idea that no policy should be decided by any representative without the full and direct participation of members of the group(s) affected by that policy. This involves national, ethnic, disability-based, or other groups that are often thought to be marginalized from political, social, and economic opportunities.

 


Oregon SMP logoHASL is an SMP Provider!

Senior Medicare Patrols (SMPs) empower and assist Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, errors, and abuse through outreach, counseling, and education. SMPs are grant-funded projects of the federal U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), U.S. Administration for Community Living (ACL). Their work is in three main areas:

  1. Conduct Outreach and Education. SMPs give presentations to groups, exhibit at events, and work one-on-one with Medicare beneficiaries.
  2. Engage Volunteers. Protecting older persons’ health, finances, and medical identity while saving precious Medicare dollars is a cause that attracts civic-minded Americans.
  3. Receive Beneficiary Complaints. When Medicare beneficiaries, caregivers, and family members bring their complaints to the SMP, the SMP makes a determination about whether or not fraud, errors, or abuse is suspected. When fraud or abuse is suspected, they make referrals to the appropriate state and federal agencies for further investigation.
