Medical Case Management

The health care system can be frustrating for many people, and those who are affected by HIV/AIDS can find it even more difficult to receive the services they most need. Medical Case Managers help people bridge the gaps between medical and social services and give them the tools to successfully navigate the system. Through case management, people living with HIV/AIDS are empowered to effectively handle their HIV and improve their overall health and quality of life.

The Aliveness Project provides HIV medical case management to ensure its members have access to important supportive services, information and assistance. The goal of the program is to promote and support self-sufficiency and independence.

Medical Case Management can help with a wide variety of issues. At confidential, one-on-one appointments, certified Medical Case Managers assist members with accessing:

  • Medical care resources
  • Financial assistance resources
  • Housing resources
  • Insurance
  • Substance abuse and mental health resources
  • Increase HIV knowledge

They can also help members apply for specific community and government programs.

If you have additional questions, please email Breana Gurnsey, Lead Case Manager, with your inquires at breana@aliveness.org.".
