Ryan White Pre-eligibility
The following questions will help determine your pre-eligibility for Ryan White services. If you are found pre-eligible after answering the questions, you will be asked to provide your contact information (phone number, address, email) and consent to be contacted by a care coordinator in your area. This person will help connect you with medical and social support services at your local Ryan White Clinic or health department. Keep in mind that these questions determine your pre-eligibility only. Your responses and contact information will be kept confidential and will only be used by your local clinic to determine your final eligibility. You will need to be seen at a Ryan White Clinic or health department to determine your final eligibility for Ryan White services.

Anti-Retroviral Treatment and Access to Services (ARTAS) is an intervention aimed at linking individuals who are either newly diagnosed with HIV/AIDS or were in treatment but have dropped out of care to medical care. ARTAS is time- and session-limited meeting up to five sessions over a 90-day period with a Linkage Coordinator. The Linkage Coordinator’s role is to assist individuals with linking to medical care along with providing practical assistance, including providing transportation to a clinic, making contact with the clinic, notifying a partner, getting housing, and identifying other barriers to following through with medical care. ARTAS can help clients identify and overcome barriers to linking to medical care by identifying and accessing resources and personal strengths.
