One year before the health care coverage expansion is expected to take place in 2014, this session will provide an update on key health care reform provisions and how Ryan White grantees and clients can prepare for them. Presenters will cover three inter-related topics critical to a smooth transition for Ryan White providers and programs. The session will begin with an update on health care reform implementation, focusing on the Medicaid expansion, continue with lessons learned from the California Low Income Health Insurance Program and conclude by highlighting key reform issues and opportunities for HIV medical providers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to describe the latest status of health care reform, particularly the Medicaid expansion, and evaluate how reforms may affect access to HIV care.
  • Participants will be able to identify recommendations from California providers and advocates for effectively transitioning uninsured people with HIV into health care coverage.
  • Participants will be able to describe key reform issues relevant to HIV medical providers.
