Sexual Assault Exam Program
Crime Victims Compensation is a payor of forensic sexual assault exams through the Sexual Assault Examination (SAE) Program.
SAE providers should submit the required payment forms to the CVC SAE Program after first billing existing private or public medical insurance providers. Any remaining uncovered expenses are paid by CVC directly to SAE providers, subject to regulatory caps pursuant to 802 KAR 3:020.
State law prohibits the hospital, the sexual assault examination facility, the physician, the pharmacist, the health department, the sexual assault nurse examiner, other qualified medical professional, the victim's insurance carrier, or the Commonwealth from billing the victim.
Victims are not responsible for filing a claim with the SAE Program and should not receive medical statements from the facility that performed the sexual assault examination. The victim may, however, be charged for expenses not related to the examination process (e.g., ambulance expenses, follow-up care, hospitalizations, surgical procedures). In such cases, the victim may file a separate claim for these expenses with the CVC program.
