Are you an HIV clinic manager or medical provider with questions about how to prepare your program and patients and to participate in health care reform?
Many people with HIV who currently rely on the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program will begin enrolling in Medicaid or new marketplace coverage in October 2013 for coverage effective in January 2014.
Learn from health care financing and Ryan White Program expert Julia Hidalgo, ScD, MSW, MPH how you can ready your medical program or clinic for health care reform. Dr. Hidalgo will discuss nuts-and-bolts steps to ensure readiness, including meeting the Ryan White Program payer of last resort requirement, contracting with Medicaid and commercial insurance plans, maximizing third party reimbursement, and educating patients about how to enroll in health plans to ensure access to HIV-experienced care.
This webinar is an intermediate, 1.5 hour-long webinar targeted to medical clinic managers and HIV medical providers (physicians, nurses and other clinicians) working in programs, with a focus on those agencies receiving Ryan White Program funding. This webinar is designed for individuals seeking intermediate readiness training!
On July 21, 2012, AAHIVM hosted a policy forum in conjunction with the International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012) in Washington, DC entitled, "What's Ahead for HIV Providers with the Affordable Care Act, Ryan White and Medicaid."
The Forum was designed to help HIV providers understand what lies ahead in the coming years, including the impact of the health reform law implementation and what HIV practitioners need to do to prepare for the coming changes. Government leaders and policy experts joined AAHIVM to discuss these important topics.
