The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program enables us to provide you with:

- Nutrition services and food supplements

Ryan White Sliding Fee Schedule
We receive financial support from many different parts of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, one of which requires us to have a sliding fee discount schedule. A “sliding fee schedule” simply means that the price of treatment depends on your ability to pay. Please note that enrollment in Ryan White is not insurance.
The Ryan White Sliding Fee only applies to:
- Primary care visits with a doctor who can prescribe medication
- Patients above 100% of FPL (Federal Poverty Level).
The Ryan White Sliding Fee Discount does NOT apply to:
- Patients at or below 100% of FPL (Federal Poverty Level).
- Labs, nurse visits, dental, behavioral health, imaging, specialty care, or support services.
Other things to remember:
- You will always be seen as scheduled, even if you are unable to pay the fee.
- You will not receive a bill if you are unable to pay the fee.
- You will never be denied service if you are unable to pay the fee.
- The fees cannot be covered by or billed to cost sharing programs.
