In 2006 Massachusetts enacted a healthcare reform law containing most of the same elements as the Federal Affordable Care Act. Since that time, the Massachusetts Ryan White Part B program has had the unique opportunity to experience the impact of changes that will affect the rest of the States in 2014. This workshop will explore the successes and challenges that Ryan White administrators in Massachusetts have faced in a “post healthcare reform world." The primary focus of the workshop will be the impact of a multipayer environment on ADAP, but other areas discussed will include the important role of non- reimbursable support services and benefits coordination for people living with HIV.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe impact of changes in payer environment on existing Part B services.
  • Outline the ongoing need for Ryan White services despite the high percentage of citizens with health insurance access.
  • Identify administrative challenges of dealing with multiple payers.
