Ryan White Care Act Program
The Ryan White Care Act provides funding for HIV/AIDS related care for persons meeting certain income and residency requirements. The HIV/AIDS program at Watts Healthcare Corporation receives federal grant funding through the Ryan White Treatment Modernization Act. These grants allow us to provide other specialty services such as medical social work, short-term/long-term medication copayment assistance and other support services to those who are uninsured or underinsured, in addition to primary care services.
The HIV/AIDS program at WHCC has been providing Ryan White Part C services since 2003 and Part A services as early as the nineties. Ryan White Part C services are a part of the Ryan White Treatment Modernization Act, which provides funds to health care facilities for HIV Early Intervention Services and primary care in outpatient settings. Both Part A and C funding make it possible for healthcare providers to offer HIV counseling, testing, and referral; counseling and education on living with HIV, including the availability and use of treatment therapies; appropriate medical evaluation and clinical care such as laboratory tests and medication to prevent and treat illness as well as direct services for oral health care, outpatient and inpatient substance abuse treatment, and other specialty medical care.
