Medicaid HIV - SNP

MetroPlus Partnership in Care provides a team approach to caring for people living with HIV/AIDS. The Health and Wellness team includes an HIV Specialist as your PCP, a social worker, a nutritionist and a Nurse Case Manager who help you manage your condition and stay healthy. Our Case Managers help you make appointments with an HIV Specialist and stay on top of your medications. We can also make it easier to see specialty providers, such as Hepatitis C experts, dermatologists and heart specialists, and get support services.
