HIV Case Management Program / Ryan White Emergency Financial Assistance Program
HIV Case Management agencies are located throughout Ohio, providing coverage for every county in the state. Case managers who are trained to help people living with HIV or AIDS can help find the medical treatment and programs they need. A case manager can also determine eligibility for Ryan White Emergency Financial Assistance.
The purpose of the Ryan White Emergency Financial Assistance Program is to assist individuals who are HIV positive and have an emergency need that is HIV-related. The program is one of last resort. Services that may be covered include: medical services, limited dental services and limited mental health services.
Ohio AIDS Drug Assistance Program
The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) administers the Ohio AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP), providing medications to treat HIV and HIV-related conditions. In addition to ADAP, the Health Insurance Premium Payment (HIPP) program is designed for those with health insurance coverage (such as COBRA).
Ohio Quality Management
The Quality Management (QM) program promotes continuous improvement in our programs by meeting the Ryan White Care Act requirements for quality management. These requirements include: 1) measuring how well HIV health services meet Public Health Guidelines; and, 2) developing strategies for improving access to quality HIV health services such as medical care and case management.
Ohio Minority AIDS Initiative
Part B grantees have received funds under the Congressional Black Caucus Initiative since FY 2001. These funds support educational and out reach grants to minority community-based organizations to increase the number of minorities participating in the HIV Care Services Program.
