AARC recognizes the inaccessibility caused by rates of health insurance co-pays and medical costs. AARC offers Health Insurance Premium and Cost Sharing Assistance (HIPCSA), to relieve people who are hindered by the medical care and insurance fees. AARC aims to keep people in medical care without any disruption of treatment. We assist with insurance co-pay coverage to encourage people living with HIV to continue and stay in medical care to result in a greater overall health outcome.
