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 health insurance or Medicaid medical assistance. 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:
- Your gross annual household income cannot exceed 400% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). If household income exceeds 400% FPL, you may still qualify based on medical expenses.
- The CARE Program covers medications and outpatient care and can cover premiums, copays and deductibles for specific types of health insurance.
Contact the NH CARE Program for information on these upcoming meetings:
- The HIV Planning Group (HPG) meets quarterly to discuss HIV/AIDS policy and program issues relating to HIV services for CARE clients statewide. Members of the public are encouraged to participate.
