Establishing HIV Care at HOPES
If you are newly diagnosed or relocated to this area and want to establish HIV care, please call our Intake Case Managers Jenn D. (775-997-7500) or Jeanni A (775-236-0689). An HIV Case Manager will assess your needs in their office, a hospital, or by phone within 24-48 hours.
If you are calling the main line, please indicate you would like to establish specialty care at HOPES.
What to Expect
At your first appointment with our Case Managers, it is important that you bring specific documents to see if you are eligible for our Ryan White program. These include:
- Proof of HIV Status
- Picture Identification with Current Address
- Proof of Nevada Residency – This may include rental agreements, utility bills, birth certificates, 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
At your first medical appointment, you will meet your HIV Specialists who will work with you and our medical team to ensure you get the care you need. Our HIV Specialists like to see HOPES’ patients every 4-6 months so that we can monitor your health effectively.
