MetroPlus Partnership in Care (PIC) 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 will 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.
MetroPlus Partnership in Care (PIC) is open to most Medicaid eligible adults and children living with HIV/AIDS in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan or Staten Island. Children (up to age 21) of Partnership in Care members are also eligible to enroll, even if they are HIV negative.
If you live in New York City, are on Medicaid, and are receiving care for transgender health (gender dysphoria), you may be eligible to enroll in our Partnership in Care Special Needs Plan (SNP). Your children may also qualify to enroll in the SNP. Learn more here (English/Spanish).
