Important Information on the Process for Ryan White Funds 

  • Financial assistance is based on eligibility and limited by the availability of funds.

  • Clients must apply for all eligible entitlements and benefits (Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, etc.) before applying for financial assistance through MAF. All funding sources are payers of last resort. Your Case Manager can assist with applications.

  •  No records or protected health information pertaining to any client will be released without an authorization to use and disclose protected health information form signed by the client. MAF needs a PHI signed for each Invoice by client, to request funding.

  • All invoices must be current and addressed to the client, not MAF. All payments for services will be made directly to the provider. No payments are made to the client and no client reimbursements are permitted. Original invoices should be turned in with the requests to the client's Case Manager by the 15th of the month. Payments are mailed to providers by the end of the month.

  • Each financial request will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the Client Services Director and the Executive Director.

  • Active clients agree to keep MAF informed in a timely manner of their current address, telephone number and any changes in status. Changes in income must be reported immediately as they may affect eligibility of the applicant.

  • Clients are urged to remember that this is an application process. Although MAF makes every effort to meet the needs of clients, due to limited funding, some applications will inevitably be denied.
