The Ryan White legislation requires that funded programs have a sliding fee scale; patients below the federal poverty level cannot be charged for services. In addition, Ryan White programs must implement a cap on out-of-pocket charges for patients with an income above 100% of the federal poverty line. This session will review the program guidelines, as well as various ways to integrate this requirement into a successful care program.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will learn about the Ryan White legislative and program requirements as it relates to sliding fee scales and cap on out-of-pocket charges.
  • Participants will be given several tools and strategies to implement and manage a sliding fee scale and cap on out-of-pocket charges in their grant program.
  • Participants will utilize case studies to determine the eligibility and cap on out-of -pocket charges for different types of patients. These case studies will also be used to illustrate the potential for program income based on implementing these program requirements, and how that income can be reinvested back into the program.
