KFF brief explores impact of ACA on HIV
Posted on October 2, 2012 | No Comments
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) aims to expand access to health insurance coverage for people living with HIV, many of whom are uninsured, underinsured, or otherwise unable to access quality and stable health care coverage. Access to care for people living with HIV not only improves health outcomes, but also carries important public health benefits, as antiretroviral use is shown to reduce the risk of HIV tranmission. An issue brief recently released by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) explores the implications of the ACA for people living with HIV and takes into account the Supreme Court’s June 28th ruling. The brief reviews key ACA provisions, the changes resulting from the Supreme Court decision, and looks ahead to questions and opportunities.
