The Care Coordination program assists persons living with HIV/AIDS who have been released from correctional facilities within the past 6 months by providing immediate access to medications and linkage to medical care and support services. The Care Coordination program:
- Provides access to a 30-day supply of medications to all referred clients, regardless of insurance status or enrollment in government assistance programs
- Assists clients with enrolling into the Expedited Enrollment Program (EEP).
- Assists clients with fully enrolling into VA MAP or another benefits assistance program based on the client’s eligibility.
In addition, the Care Coordination program monitors client access to medication and medical care for 12 months and assists clients by addressing barriers to care by linking them to community services. The success of the Care Coordination program is the result of a collaborative effort based on well-established relationships among the Virginia Department of Corrections (VADOC), Virginia Regional and Local Jails (VRLJs),Local Health Departments (LHDs), statewide VA MAP coordinators, VA MAP program technicians, case managers,and other statewide community partners.
