Brother has AIDS and has no way to pay for meds
      #229343 - 08/11/07 11:56 PM

My brother was just informed by the State of Ohio he is no konger eligible for Medicaid because he gets $900.00 a month SSI disability. With his rent, utilities, food, and limited other expense he has no money for medicines and Doctors treatments. Is there any help out there?

Yes, there is help out there. He needs to become a client of his local ASO. They manage various grants, the main one being the Ryan White. Those funds are used to help clients pay for food, medicine, doctors and labs, even housing costs, depending on certain criteria. They also can explain and help get information on other programs that can help your brother, such as ADAP or PPRAX

Here is the list of ASOs broken out by state. Your brother needs to get in touch with the one closest to him. They are a wealth of information and referrals.

This is why I am so sick of politics people like myself and your brother suffer at the hands of ignorant politicians. Right now I think you can go through the pharmacudical companies or though your state ADAP program, you would need to contat your local AIDS FOUNDATION or Ryan White Case Management Team. I hope this info is helpful if you need anything else just whistle

I do a lot of research on this disease and available research please let me know what state you are in... I should be able to help you find some resources. There are some clinics who specialize only in HIV/AIDS and give out free medications.
