Relocating To Nevada

  1. Plan ahead as early as possible before your actual move. Many people underestimate the amount of time that’s necessary to apply for programs in the new state. If you try to catch up after you move, you may actually risk not seeing a doctor or not getting your meds for a period of time.
  2. Contact the local AIDS service organization in your new city, area or state. Speak with a knowledgeable Eligibility Specialist who knows what programs are available to you. See if you can handle some of the work over the phone before you get there.
  3. Know and document your current health benefits. This is important because many state programs differ and may not offer the same coverage. You’ll need to know what you have now, including your eligibility requirements. This way, you or your case manager can compare what you currently have to what’s available in your new state of residence.
  4. Get a 3-6 month supply of your current meds before you move to cover you in case of a lapse in coverage. Hopefully your transition will be smooth, but an adequate supply of medications will make any lapses easier to handle.
