All Ryan White clients or those who are eligible to become Ryan White clients, who qualify for insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or "Obamacare" must enroll or re-enroll during this Open Enrollment. Following the close of the Open Enrollment (1/31/16), only those who change a job that provides their coverage, have a change in status, i.e. get married, or who have a change in residence to a location where their current coverage is no longer available, may qualify for a special enrollment period (SEP). Otherwise you will need to wait until next year's open enrollment period and may be required to pay tax penalties as mandated under the ACA.

Medication Assistance and Best Plans for Persons with HIV/AIDS
Virginia ADAP (AIDS Drug Assistance Program), operates the Health Insurance Marketplace Assistance Program (HIMAP). HIMAP will pay both medication costs and health insurance premiums for eligible individuals enrolled in VDH approved Affordable Care Act plans. Those who enroll or re-enroll in health insurance without going through ADAP may not be eligible for ADAP support.
Contact: Medication Assistance Hotline: 1-855-362-0658 or www.vdh.virginia.gov/ADAP
The Hotline can also pay for HIV medications for those not enrolled in health insurance and offer information on obtaining ACA health insurance.
