Case management for people living with HIV/AIDS
Medical case management helps people living with HIV and AIDS find and connect to services needed to improve their health and quality of life. Our case managers help individuals get primary medical care and medications, adhere to treatment plans, and access supportive services such as housing, transportation, food, dental, and mental health counseling. Services are completely voluntary and free for Washington residents living with HIV/AIDS.
