HIV+ and residents of Florida may be eligible for the RYAN WHITE Treatment Modernization Act funded medical case management at METRO. To determine eligibility, an applicant must provide acceptable proof of HIV infection along with proof of Florida residency and income. Once eligibility is confirmed, they may be able to enroll in Medical Case Management and receive necessary services, such as medications, insurance assistance, housing assistance, food pantry, Minority AIDS Initiative, and other programs.
We are dedicated to providing access to needed care, education, and reinforce being faithful to treatment.
METRO provides comprehensive case management for HIV+ women and children in Hillsborough through the Florida Family AIDS Network (FAN) program.

FAN case managers work closely with members of the family unit to connect to care, monitor the provision of services, and address any issues impacting the delivery of treatment.
