Ryan White Part D Back to Care
Getting a client into treatment with a Doctor upon diagnosis is of the utmost importance and often, clients do not know how to navigate a system that requires a lot out of them. Our role is to set clients up with a doctor’s appointment and accompany them to their initial appointment, and further appointments if necessary.
In many instances, once a client has been linked to medical care, they do well to keep up with appointments on their own. Others need a little more help. In the Ryan White Part D Program, We follow clients for as long as 6 months.
Eligible members of the Part D program are either newly HIV+ diagnosed needing to be linked to doctor’s care for the first time, or people who have not seen a doctor in at least 6 months and wish to get Back to Care.
1. Youth (male and female) between the ages of 13-24
