Find HIV/AIDS Care

  • Were you recently diagnosed as HIV+ and don’t know where to turn?
  • Were you receiving treatment but dropped out of care and want to reconnect with a doctor?
  • Were you receiving care but moved and need to find a new physician?

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program helps people with HIV/AIDS who have nowhere else to turn for the care they need. If you are HIV-positive, you can get medical care and some other services — even if you do not have health insurance or money to pay for health services.

Where Can I Find Help?

Find HIV Care and Services across the U.S., including HIV testing, HIV medical care, housing assistance, and substance abuse and mental health services.

Find your State HIV/AIDS toll-free hotline to connect with agencies that can help determine what services you are eligible for and help you get them.

Am I Eligible?

To be eligible to receive health and dental care, medications, and other health-related services through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, you must:

  • Be diagnosed with HIV or AIDS.
  • Have an income too low to pay for care.
  • Have no health insurance or not enough insurance to pay for the care you need.

In some cases, your family members can receive services through a Ryan White program focused on women, infants, children, and youth, even though they are not diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.

What Do I Pay?

What you pay for your health care mostly depends on whether you have your own health insurance and how much income and resources you have. If you do not have health insurance and have a very low income, you may not have to pay very much for the care you need.

In some cases, however, you may have to pay for some of the costs. For example, you may have to pay a certain amount for each prescription drug or for each doctor's visit. 

When you seek care, most likely, you will be assigned a case manager who will help you 

  • understand what services you are eligible to receive, 
  • apply for  assistance, and
  • find out whether you have to cover any of the costs.
