More Access to Medicaid for People With HIV

by Laura Whitehorn

A policy change made recently by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) allows states to tap into resources of more than 1,000 Medicaid projects supporting people living with HIV. Previously, positive people could only get Medicaid if they had an AIDS-related disability or very low income. The change makes care available to more people, alleviates some pressure on AIDS Drug Assistance Programs and helps states expand Medicaid as required by the Affordable Care Act, slated for full implementation in 2014. All the more reason to resist threatened cuts to Medicaid!
