To achieve optimal HIV outcomes at reasonable cost, data show that the maintenance of continuous health insurance is critical. Toward this end, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed in 2010, and has had a particularly positive impact on the ability of patients with HIV/AIDS to receive effective care. While access to HIV healthcare is now better aligned with science, additional challenges remain. For example, many patients with HIV/AIDS still do not have healthcare coverage: estimates indicate that the number of people with HIV who are uninsured is twice the national average.
This educational activity will provide medical directors, managed care pharmacists, and other managed healthcare clinicians with the latest data on the impact of health care reform on the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and will highlight shortfalls in patient coverage and the effects of these deficiencies on health outcomes and costs. Persistent barriers to the enrollment of patients with HIV in government-funded and marketplace health plans will be explored, as will practical strategies for overcoming these impediments.
Managed care medical and pharmacy directors (primary audience); primary care clinicians (secondary audience); and all physicians and pharmacists
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
Describe the rationale for treating all patients with HIV with antiretroviral therapy upon diagnosis
Implement strategies to ensure that all patients with HIV have sustained access to effective, safe, and affordable treatment
