Updates to RWHAP Services: Eligible Individuals and Allowable Uses of Funds

The HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) released an update to Policy Clarification Notice (PCN) #16-02 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Services: Eligible Individuals and Allowable Uses of Funds.  The updated PCN provides additional clarifications in the PCN as well as to a limited number of service categories and further reduces administrative burden by replacing PCN #12-01 The use of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Funds for Outreach Services. Revisions to PCN #16-02 provide additional clarifications to current policy; they do not reflect substantive changes to policy.

Revisions provide additional clarifications in the following service categories:

Core Medical Services:

  • AIDS Drug Assistance Program Treatments
  • AIDS Pharmaceutical Assistance
  • Health Insurance Premium and Cost Sharing Assistance for Low-income People Living with HIV
  • Outpatient/Ambulatory Health Services

Support Services:

  • Emergency Financial Assistance
  • Housing
  • Non-Medical Case Management
  • Outreach
  • Rehabilitation Services

A technical assistance webinar for RWHAP recipients is planned for early 2019 – additional details will be forthcoming.
