Lake Cumberland District Health Department
A healthy today for a brighter tomorrow.
The Lake Cumberland District Health Department offers medical and social support services, referrals, and guidance for HIV-positive patients living in Central and Eastern Kentucky. Case management services are available through the Ryan White Part B Care Coordination Program. Care Coordinators serve as medical case managers that facilitate patient care by helping patients participate in HIV treatment without any barriers to care.

Enrollment in the Care Coordination Program requires an annual certification to verify current income, residency status, insurance status, and eligibility in the program.
Financial assistance is based on household income and size. If you are at or below 500% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, you may be eligible for financial assistance with medical, dental and mental health needs, medications, health insurance premiums and transportation.
Case management services at the Health Department are for persons who are HIV positive. The initial intake is meant to provide education and information about the program. Other resources for services will be given depending on an evaluation of your needs.
