The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) provides federal funding for HIV/AIDS programs to individual states and territories. The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare receives this federal funding through The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Care Act. The Idaho Ryan White Part B (RWPB) program receives the federal funding annually and serves an average of two hundred fifty to three hundred (250-300) clients a year throughout the state. RWPB HIV MCM Program goals are to link people living with HIV and AIDS (PLWH/A) to HIV-specific medical services and other community based medical services and permanent housing; enroll eligible clients in Medicare, Medicaid, or other designated payment sources; assess clients’ medical care and support needs; develop a plan of care for each individual; and follow and adjust the plan of care as needed. In addition, RWPB-funded MCM is an integral part of the system of checks and balances necessary to ensure that Idaho’s PLWH/A receive quality care.
