One of the most important aspects of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is its focus on prevention and expanded coverage of many preventive services to keep people from becoming sick in the first place.
This webinar - sponsored by hivhealthreform.org -- provides an overview of the preventative services included in the ACA that can improve the health of people living with HIV and promote HIV prevention.
Presenters will review what preventive services will be covered by Medicaid, Medicare or private insurance plans, including the women’s preventive services package, and discuss the important role the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force plays in coverage determinations. Using HIV screening as a case study, we will examine how preventive services are being implemented at the state and federal level and highlight some of the barriers towards implementation. A CDC staff member has been invited to discuss how the agency is implementing ACA’s preventive services to assist in their work to prevent HIV.
