Description

This HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau webcast will discuss how safety net providers and the Ryan White Program are likely to be affected when the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) major coverage expansions become effective in 2014. The presentation will address how these changes are expected to impact Ryan White Program providers including:

  • Patient populations;
  • Business environment; and
  • Roles and responsibilities as employers.

The session will also review the expectations for health insurers participating in the Marketplaces to contract with a subset of Essential Community Providers and include information on how to educate patients on new insurance options. The webcast is open to all Ryan White Program grantees.
