HIV care providers face numerous changes to the health care system in the coming months and years. It is important to take steps to ensure that your practice is prepared.
In order to ready your practice for the implementation of health reform changes that will begin in 2014, there are a few keys things at HIV providers in every state can do.
Health Reform is happening differently in every state. The State Insurance Exchanges, state Medicaid program, Medicaid managed care, and Ryan White program will look different in each state after 2014.
The most important thing you can do is to educate yourself and your staff on the changes to the systems of coverage and care in your state.
AAHIVM has prepared the following document to provide direction to HIV providers in fully connecting their practice to all the available systems of coverage in your state after health reform is implemented, and therefore having access to the patients in those systems.
