Medical Care and Support Services:

  • Medical Assistance (Medicaid), which offers a full range of treatment and medications for low income individuals and families.
  • Medicare is health insurance for people age 65 or older, and under 65 with certain disabilities.
  • Federal funding from the Ryan White Act supports many health care and other support services for people living with HIV. Ryan White-funded programs are the "payer of last resort" and used primarily by people who have no insurance (uninsured) or are underinsured (i.e. their insurance does not cover all of the services they need). Services available through Ryan White include drug assistance (MADAP), health insurance payment assistance (MADAP-Plus) and medical care and support services. There is also housing assistance available through the Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS (HOPWA) program.


The local health department is the often the best place to start to find out about the treatment and medical care services in a specific community and to explore eligibility for services. Click on the jurisdiction to find locations where HIV medical care and support services are offered in that jurisdiction.


Another tool for finding treatment and medical care resources is the Maryland Community Services Locator , a centralized tool for Maryland service providers and the public to locate a comprehensive listing of community services, including maps and driving directions to locations.
