Closing of the Suburban Virginia Regional HOPWA Housing Waitlist
Effective January 30, 2015
Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC) is closing the Regional HOPWA Housing Waitlist effective January 30, 2015. NVRC will not accept new applications to the waitlist after this date. Currently there are no plans to re-open the waitlist at a later date.
If and when NVRC decides to re-open the waitlist, an announcement will be posted on the www.novaregion.org/hiv website, emailed to all HOPWA and Ryan White service providers funded through NVRC, and emailed to members of the NVH Consortium.
Those currently on the waitlist are required to update their personal contact information by submitting changes in writing in order to remain on the waitlist. This is very important when the list is closed as clients whose contact information is wrong risk missing out when called for services. While NVRC will not be taking new applications when the waitlist is closed, staff will continue to let those currently on the waitlist know about HOPWA housing opportunities that may become available to them.
ACA Enrollment for 2015 Open from November 15, 2014 – February 15, 2015
If you have a health insurance plan purchased from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Marketplace in 2014, you must re-enroll to be covered in 2015. Re-enroll by December 15 to avoid a period without insurance. You may change plans or keep the one you have, but check carefully as participating providers, services, medications, and costs may change from one year to the next within the same plan. Many more plans are being offered in 2015 than in 2014. Anyone can check to see if they are eligible in 2015, regardless of whether he or she enrolled in 2015.
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
If you receive a letter from the Virginia Dept. of Health about health insurance, take action.
