The purpose of this 90-minute panel presentation is to present findings and recommendations from the final report of the 2012 Potential Impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Study. The presentation describes key ACA reforms in six areas (insurance eligibility (including Medicaid expansion), health insurance exchanges, insurance benefits, insurance costs, service delivery models, and provider payment reforms), reviews the status of the implementation of each reform, discusses its implications for RWHAP and people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), and makes recommendations about what can be done by the HIV/AIDS Bureau, RWHAP grantees, providers, clients, and other PLWHA, to address the provisions’ challenges and opportunities. The findings are based on a comprehensive scan of the ACA literature, consultations with technical experts, and interviews with selected state Medicaid programs. The session will be organized as three slide presentations of ACA provisions and recommendations, followed by a panel discussion with three states sharing innovative ACA initiatives.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will gain a better understanding of how key ACA provisions will likely affect RWHAP grantees, providers, clients, and other PLWHA.
  • Participants will learn about important milestones in the ACA implementation process and key leverage points where stakeholders can make a difference in the implementation of the law.
  • Participants will learn about what states have done to prepare RWHAP grantees, providers, clients, and other PLWHA for the transition to the ACA.
