Benefits Counseling

Navigating the complex world of public and private health insurance and health programs can be difficult.


Rainbow Health’s Benefits Counseling program is designed to help people living with HIV who are income-eligible for Minnesota’s AIDS Drug Assistance Program (Program HH). This program helps around 400 Minnesotans a year and allows them to get the care they need.
