The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, classified by Title XXVI of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, and amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-87, October 30, 2009) is the largest Federal program directed exclusively toward HIV/AIDS care. The Program provides a comprehensive system of HIV primary medical care, medications and essential support services for low-income people living with HIV who are unisnured or underinsured. The Part B Program is administered by the Utah Department of Health through grants awarded to states to provide HIV care and treatment services. The UDOH Ryan White Part B program works through contracted providers to deliver services to people living with HIV/AIDS who meet eligibility requirements.
To be eligible for the Ryan White Part B Program, an individual must:
- Be HIV positive
- Reside in Utah
- Be at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level(FPL) according to gross annual household income
- Not own more than one registered vehicle
- Not own more than one home
If an individual is eligible for Medicaid then that individual is not eligible for the Ryan White Part B Program. If an individual is eligible for Medicaid and chooses not to pay his/her spend down, then the Ryan White Part B Program will not cover those services that would have been covered by Medicaid if the individual had paid their spend down.
