Care Coordination is free, comprehensive, specialized case management that connects individuals living with HIV to the resources they need to live long, fulfilling lives. There is no cost for Care Coordination, and if you are HIV+, you can access Care Coordination services. Our Care Coordinators assist patients with:
- Referrals for medical care and medical transportation
- Health insurance including HIP 2.0
- Referrals for vision/dental care and legal services
- Direct Emergency Financial Assistance
- Food pantry access
The goal of Care Coordination is to link our patients with the medical care and other services they need. Patients are typically seen at The Damien Center, but visits to your home, hospital, or nursing home are also available.
We serve more than 1,100 HIV+ patients each year of all ages, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and backgrounds. Our Care Coordinators have diverse backgrounds and extensive experience in infectious diseases. We work with children and adults, and are well-equipped to accommodate issues including substance abuse, mental health, cultural barriers, and much more. Our bilingual Care Coordinator can serve those who speak Spanish, and interpreters for other languages can be requested, including ASL.
