Language Access, Interpreter Services, and Alternative Formats

Everyone has a right to know about Advanced Health’s programs and services. All members and potential members have a right to use our programs and services. We give free help when you need it.

You can have an Oregon Health Authority (OHA) approved and certified voice or sign language interpreter at your appointments if you need one. When you call for an appointment, tell your provider’s office that you need an interpreter and for which language.  We encourage the use of certified interpreters, and not family members.

Some examples of the free help we can give are:

  • Sign language interpreters
  • Spoken language interpreters for other languages
  • Written materials in other languages
  • Braille
  • Large print
  • Audio and other formats

Language Line

The language line is an interpreter service for all languages. This service is free to you. Tell the provider’s office what language you need. An interpreter will call to answer any questions. They can also help with any health care visits you have.

Please call Advanced Health at 541-269-7400 if you are interested in using Language Line Services.
