What is HIV/AIDS Case Management?
HIV/AIDS Case Management is a service available for uninsured or underinsured County residents living with HIV/AIDS. Case managers are registered nurses, social workers or other trained people who provide a link between an HIV-positive person and the health care community. Case managers provide an assessment of the client’s needs, and they provide referrals for services to help the HIV-positive person begin and continue with medical care and treatment.
What services are offered?
The case manager provides referrals for
- medical care and treatment;
- social services such as food, housing, transportation and insurance; and
- other resources.
How does Case Management work?
- First, a case manager and the HIV-infected person meet and talk about the illness and determine what health care services will be needed.
- Together a care plan is written on how to get the necessary services.
- The case manager provides information on how to apply for these services.
Is there a cost?
There are no direct costs to clients for HIV/AIDS Case Management Services. However, clients must be HIV-positive and meet income eligibility for some of the services arranged by case managers through referrals. Case management is available for people who are uninsured or underinsured. Ryan White Part A and B provide funds for the HIV/AIDS Case Management Program.
