Ryan White / ADAP Reauthorization
« on: April 01, 2020, 08:54:59 pm »
Hey all,...

I'm sure as everyone knows, If you are on Ryan White , you need to reauthorize every 6 months.

I am due to renew May 4th, but I usually do this about a week and a half in advance.
I walk in for this renewal  on Mondays and/or Thursdays.

I have to drive down to St. Petersburg, and speak with a case worker face to face, show some documents , sign a couple papers and be on my way.

The entire process, takes about 20 minutes to do. The drive down there takes 35 minutes.

I decided to call down there yesterday, and ask if re-authorization changes are taking place because of COVID-19. It could be disastrous to have 15 or 20 people in the waiting room, waiting for a face to face 6 month renewal.  She agreed.

The woman I spoke told me they are operating on a short staff, and that other changes are in the works.

Long story short, She asked me if I can email her all the documents needed to reauthorize.  I said no problem. 

She informed to call her in about 3 weeks, she gave me her personal number, at that point she will give me her email address so I can attach 9 different documents to her, so I can be renewed.  I've done this many times ( Twice a year) so I know exactly what to send her.

So I have all my documents scanned and saved, Just waiting for 3 weeks, to get her email address and send them on my way.

This is the cover email I will send her:

In regards to our conversation on 3/31/2020, I am sending you this information for Re authorization purposes of ADAP/Ryan White. Just an FYI,  I receive all my Healthcare and Medications though the VA Health Care System. ( Primary and Infectious Disease) The only services I receive through ASAP/ADAP is Dental care, through ALPHA DENTAL in St. Petersburg.

Please find attached in this Email, 9 ( Nine ) Different scans of Documents required for re authorization of Ryan White/ ADAP.  If anything else is required please let me know, such as Social security card, or Voting Card.

Would I be receiving from you through Email, a new NOTICE OF ELIGIBILITY Paper, with a new Re-determination date for the next re authorization date, for me to sign, date and send back to you ?

Attached are  the Following:

Scan # 1 -- Is a copy of my last appt. for my Primary care DR. ********, through the VA healthcare system.  This appt. took place on December 23rd, 2019.

Scan #2-- Is a copy of my last HIV lab appt, card, that took place on Friday March 13th, 2020.

Scan# 3-- Is my appointment with infectious disease at Bay Pines to discuss latest labs taken on March 13th, 2020.

Scan# 4-- Is the result of HIV labs taken of March 13th, 2020. CD-4 and Viral load results.

Scan# 5-- Is a letter from the VA ( Affordable care Act) and proof of residence

Scan #--6 Is proof of Continuous Healthcare Coverage throughout year 2019.

Scan# 7-- Is from Social security for Earnings, of  $ ******** Dollars Per month for 2020. This became effective with increase in Social Security,  starting January of 2020.

Scan # 8-- was total social security paid to me in 2019 of  $ ********.

Scan# 9 -- Is more proof of address, and medications mailed to me on or about February 10th, 2020.

Thank you -- ***************


Anyway--- If you are on Ryan white and you need to reauthorize soon you may want to call and see what changes may be in the future because of COVID-19 so you can prepare beforehand.


Stay Well---Ray

Just giving a follow up. I reauthorized my Ryan White/ADAP, this past Thursday, and all went well and fast. And the best thing, I did it all from the comfort of my own home, didn't have to sit in a waiting room and then see someone face to face.

However, as I understood it, as of 3 days ago, they were still seeing people face to face, to renew. I also understand that many people don't have computers or the means, to do this renewal the way I did it.

 I am good for another 6 months now.! Just about the time for the second wave of covid-19.

On the local front, 23 nursing homes, and/or assisted living centers, are infected with Covid -19 .  Staff and residents.   :'(   That is just here in Pinellas County, FL.
