Are you an HIV clinic manager or medical provider with questions about how to prepare your program and patients and to participate in health care reform?
Learn from health care financing and Ryan White Program expert Julia Hidalgo, ScD, MSW, MPH how you can ready your medical program or clinic for health care reform. Dr. Hidalgo will discuss nuts-and-bolts steps to ensure readiness, including meeting the Ryan White Program payer of last resort requirement, contracting with Medicaid and commercial insurance plans, maximizing third party reimbursement, and educating patients about how to enroll in health plans to ensure access to HIV-experienced care.
This webinar is an intermediate, 1.5 hour-long webinar targeted to medical clinic managers and HIV medical providers (physicians, nurses and other clinicians) working in programs, with a focus on those agencies receiving Ryan White Program funding.
