In Response to COVID-19

Boulder is here to support new and existing patients, and dedicated to serving our communities during this time.

For Patients

At Boulder, our priority is always to help keep you safe and well. The impact of COVID-19 is far-reaching. Self-isolation, feelings of anxiety, and disruption to your normal routine can become challenging triggers. Boulder’s goal is to ensure you have uninterrupted access to care, anywhere you are.

In response to COVID-19, Boulder is currently accepting new patients for opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment in Alaska and Oregon regardless of insurance or current ability to pay. We are also offering additional services to our participants with OUD, including COVID-19 advice and triage, primary and urgent care services for those who can safely stay at home, and, as always, peer coaching and support.

To get started, check out our Pathways to Treatment.

Online Support Meetings

As the CDC is currently recommending “social distancing,” online support meetings and groups like those listed below can be great alternatives to in-person options:

For Providers and Payors

As delivery systems direct scarce resources to respond to COVID-19, Boulder is reducing the load by offering at-home telemedicine treatment to anyone residing in Alaska or Oregon seeking treatment for opioid use.
 

  • For Emergency Medicine and Urgent Care facilities: we can help triage before people are admitted and occupy a bed, or are turned away due to a lack of capacity. We can also start treatment at the critical moment patients are ready without going on a waitlist or worrying about accessing an in-person facility.
     
  • For OTPs or methadone outpatient providers: we can safely transition patients to home-based care to avoid a dangerous disruption to treatment or medication. Boulder can also evaluate needs for longer prescriptions in preparation for shortages or challenges with accessing the health care system based on individual needs.
     
  • For primary care and community-based providers: if changing circumstances have impacted your current capacity, we can transition patients to treatment through Boulder, as well as offer COVID-19 advice and triage, primary care, and other services.
