Ryan White Part B HIV Client Services Program
The Ryan White Part B Program assists Ohioans living with HIV. Eligible clients must be linked with a case management agency to be enrolled and re-enrolled in Ohio’s Ryan White Part B HIV Client Services Program. The program is one of last resort, meaning the program can help cover some of the costs associated with living with HIV not otherwise covered by insurance or other community resources.
Services that are funded include:
- Medical, dental, and mental health services.
- Benefit navigation.
- Peer navigation.
- Case management.
HIV Client Services agencies are located throughout Ohio, providing services for people living with HIV in every county in the state. For a list of these agencies, please go to the Ryan White Part B HIV Client Services Program webpage.
