WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR DOORWAYS’ HOUSING ASSISTANCE SERVICES?

In order to receive DOORWAYS services, you will need a verified diagnosis of HIV/AIDS and proof of financial need, and should be enrolled in HIV/AIDS case management services.

DOORWAYS works closely with other agencies to provide appropriate care without duplication of services.

HOW DOES THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT IMPACT PEOPLE LIVING WITH HIV/AIDS?

On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act and set into place an effort that will help ensure that Americans have secure, stable, affordable health insurance and the relief they need from skyrocketing health insurance costs. Historically, people living with HIV and AIDS have had a difficult time obtaining private health insurance and have been particularly vulnerable to insurance industry abuses.
