Establishing HIV Care at HOPES

New Patient Intake Process
At your intake appointment, it is helpful if you bring specific documents to help us assess eligibility for programs, including our Ryan White Program.
The Ryan White Program is a nationwide program that assists HIV/AIDS patients and their families with a variety of services. The Program works with cities, states and local community-based organizations to provide HIV-related services to individuals who are uninsured or underinsured.
Documents to assess Ryan White eligibility include*:
- Proof of HIV Status
- Proof of Nevada Residency – This may include rental agreements, utility bills, birth certificates, a green card with social security number or other official correspondence that has the same address as the picture identification.
- Proof of Income – This may include paycheck stubs, disability award letter, or other official document stating monthly income.
- Proof of Insurance (If available)
* If you do not have these documents readily available, your case manager will work with you to get documentation.
You will meet with our medical team after your intake appointment. Our HIV providers like to see our patients every 4-6 months. During your medical visits, you will have access to Behavioral Health, Case Management services, and more.
We accept most major health plans and also offer a sliding scale fee for all services. We provide services regardless of an individual’s ability to pay.
In addition, we are funded (in part) by grants from the US Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, HIV/AIDS Bureau, and the Ryan White HIV/AIDS program and the State of Nevada, Office of HIV/AIDS.
