How it Works & Next Steps

Q Care Link offers patients flexible and convenient care benefits like easy virtual provider visits, convenient at-home or in-person labs, and prescriptions delivered discreetly right to your door.

Meet Our Team

During your intake appointment with our Care Coordinator, you'll have a comprehensive discussion about your HIV history. We will schedule a virtual appointment with a carefully matched medical provider, and if necessary, will order labs.

Medical Provider Consultation

Your assigned Q Care Link medical provider will thoroughly review your history, lab results, and medications, engaging in an informative discussion during your initial appointment.

Lab Tests

Depending on your unique circumstances, your Q Care Link medical provider may request additional lab tests to tailor the best HIV treatment plan for you. If you have up-to-date labs taken within the last 6 months, additional testing may not be necessary.

Prescription Delivery

Your prescribed medication(s) will be promptly delivered to your doorstep in discreet packaging by our trusted partner pharmacy*. Enjoy the convenience of fast and easy prescription delivery.

Continued Care

Rest assured that your dedicated Q Care Link medical provider will manage all aspects of your HIV care, including prescribing medication(s), coordinating lab tests as needed, and providing counseling and support to ensure your well-being.

Q Care Link - What it cost

What Treatment Costs

Within the Q Care Plus program, Q Care Link offers HIV care with little to no out-of-pocket costs. By collaborating with partner non-profit healthcare organizations and your insurance company, we manage the coverage of expenses related to your HIV care, including labs and medications.

Currently, the Q Care Link HIV program is available to patients with health insurance to cover lab tests and medication costs. If you don’t have current health insurance, rest assured that we can potentially connect you with resources to help you find coverage.

Meet our HIV Medical Providers

We understand the significance of individualized care. That’s why each of our patients is paired with a dedicated member of our experienced medical team. Our Q Care Link team consists of clinicians certified by the American Academy of HIV Medicine, who together bring decades of expertise in providing exceptional care for individuals living with HIV.
