While you focus on staying Positively You, we’ll help you and your partners stay healthy. Pretty simple, really.

GETTING STARTED

People who are just diagnosed with HIV can get overwhelmed thinking about how to pay for health care. The Ryan White Program offers free eligibility screenings, including eligibility for other assistance programs like Medicaid, Indian Health Services, and the Veterans Administration, among others.

Some people think that they won’t qualify for assistance because they aren’t “poor” or disadvantaged in some way. The truth is there are a variety of programs designed to help people with a wide range of income levels and needs.

  • Case Management

    Case Management services help people with HIV connect to the medical care and support services they need to live long, healthy lives. Case Managers can meet with you at home, online, or anywhere you feel safe to talk about your personal and health goals. They can then help determine what assistance programs and services you may qualify for and help you apply for assistance.

  • Health & Medical Services

    The Ryan White Program provides high-quality HIV medical care using providers throughout the valley and can even cover your medical costs if you don’t qualify for other insurance or assistance options.

    Even if you have insurance, you may qualify for assistance to pay for health insurance premiums, copays and deductibles. Check out Help Paying for Medical Costs below for more info!
