Paying for care

Do you need financial help?

If you are uninsured or having trouble with out-of-pocket costs related to your outpatient healthcare, please contact the Ryan White program at 402.836.9181, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

One of the most critical barriers people living with HIV face in accessing care is the cost of medical care and medications. The complexity of obtaining public benefits and/or private insurance may deter some patients from accessing ongoing health care. The Ryan White programs have funding to assist uninsured and underinsured patients to access care and medication. Our Client Services Team (CST) members are trained to screen for eligibility and to help you with identifying contact information to enroll in benefit programs to ease frustration and better ensure continuity of services.

In addition to helping patients secure health insurance, CST members are available to help you navigate copay assistance programs, SNAP benefits, energy assistance, Department of Workforce Development programs/benefits, and to provide referrals for case management services, support groups, and emergency financial services through the Nebraska AIDS Project (NAP). NAP serves persons living with HIV in Nebraska and Southwest Iowa.

As a Ryan White-funded program, we will never deny you access to care due to inability to pay. If you are worried about health care-related expenses, please speak to a CST member.
