VHO expands access to health care and other support services to populations who have experienced barriers to obtaining, understanding and effectively using health insurance and other services. We accomplish this by helping individuals enroll in appropriate insurance, access additional support services and understand how to effectively use their health insurance.
VHO, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, formerly Virginia Health Options, LLC, was established in 2014 to assist in the enrollment of Ryan White clients in comprehensive ACA Federal Marketplace health insurance plans. In March 2016, VHO, Inc. became a non-profit entity in order to facilitate receiving public grant funds. In 2016, the Northern Virginia Regional Commission contracted with VHO to assume management of the Nexus Program.
Today, our work focuses largely on providing management for Nexus, a growing program that helps fill the gap in support services for patients seeking HIV+ care in private infectious disease practices.
In addition, each year, during the Open Enrollment Period we also provide support to Virginia ADAP clients enrolling in ACA Marketplace Health Insurance.
We continue to look for and evaluate the potential for expanding our scope of programs and working with other populations who could benefit from our expertise and support.
