The HIV Home Care Program is designed to enable eligible individuals living with HIV/AIDS to remain in the community, or return to the community, as an alternative to extended hospital stays or institutionalization in a nursing home or rehabilitation facility.
The HIV Home Care Program utilizes Ryan White Part B funds to provide skilled health services in the home of an HIV-infected individual, based on a written care plan prepared by a case management team including health care professionals. A comprehensive range of physician certified home health care services are provided to eligible individuals in the home through a statewide network of licensed/certified home health agencies. Several HIV Home Care Program service providers are located at New Jersey Medicaid AIDS Community Care Alternative Program (ACCAP) sites throughout the state. Referrals into the HIV Home Care Program can be made by hospitals, community agencies, as well as individual clients, family members and friends.
