Ryan White assistance

What is the Ryan White program?

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS program is a federal program that provides HIV-related health services. The program works with cities, states, and local community-based organizations to provide services to people living with HIV. The program is for those who do not have sufficient health coverage or financial resources and fills gaps in care not covered by other sources. 

What does the Ryan White program cover?

The UNMC Part C and D Ryan White program covers the costs of outpatient medical care and support services for uninsured eligible individuals. If you are uninsured, the program will cover the primary charge and you may be responsible for a small copay.

The Nebraska AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) Ryan White program may provide assistance with your medication costs, medical copays, coinsurance, and deductible for eligible services. Contact Nebraska AIDS Project (NAP) at 402.552.9260 for more information.
