Ryan White Program Income Requirements

The Ryan White federal grants require that we collect and maintain income and residency documentation bi-annually. If we are unable to obtain this information from you, the above named specialty services will not be available to you. This information is kept confidential and in a locked file cabinet in the social workers' office. This information is also used to establish patient's medical cap for services. The Ryan White legislation limits the annual cumulative charges to an individual for HIV-related services to: 

Individual/Family Annual Gross Income

Total Allowable Annual Charges

Equal to or below the official poverty line no charges permitted
101-200% of the official poverty line 5% or less of gross annual income
201-300% of the official poverty line 7% or less of gross annual income
More than 300% of the official poverty line 10% or less of gross annual income


Our program is currently in the process of establishing a system to ensure that these annual caps on charges to patients are not exceeded.
