The CARE Program Medical Advisory Board (MAB) meets quarterly to discuss policy and program issues as they relate to HIV care services for CARE clients statewide. The meeting is open to the public from 9:30-11:00.
Current Agenda May 18, 2012, 9:00 AM, Common Man restaurant, Concord
DHHS receives funding to provide life-sustaining medications and to ensure quality clinical and case management services to NH residents who are infected with HIV and are not eligible for medical assistance under Medicaid. These services include:
- prescription medication coverage,
- health insurance continuation,
- primary and specialty care services,
- home health care, and
- case management.
If you have questions about how to apply for assistance under the CARE program, talk to your health care provider or call the NH CARE Program at (603) 271-4502 or (800) 852-3345, ext. 4502 (toll-free from within NH).
To be eligible for medical assistance through the Ryan White CARE Program, a person must be a NH resident living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or a child exposed to HIV through its mother during pregnancy, and meet one of the following specific financial requirements:
- You cannot currently be covered by Medicaid or eligible for medical assistance through Medicaid or any other insurance programs
- Your gross annual household income cannot exceed 300% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL)
- When your income exceeds 300% of the FPL you are eligible for medical assistance after you expend a specific amount of your own income on healthcare related expenses annually. In this case, 80% of the difference between your annual income and the maximum annual income for your household must be spent on healthcare related expenses before you are eligible for DHHS assistance with your medical expenses.
