I'm not sure I understand your question. Certainly being HIV positive doesn't disqualify you for any entitlement programs or services. It also doesn't automatically make you eligible either. Your HIV specialist should be able to answer your specific questions or refer you to a local benefits counselor to help you address your specific concerns.
