The Affordable Care Act Resources Round-Up

patient_provider_160x120During his State of the Union speech this week, President Obama asked every American who knows someone without health insurance to help them get covered by March 31st, when open enrollment ends. You can shop for plans and sign up for coverage online at HealthCare.gov, by phone at 1-800-318-2596, by mail, or directly through an issuer, agent, or broker. You can also find in-person help in your community at findlocalhelp.healthcare.gov.

To help with enrolling in and using new health coverage, several great Affordable Care Act (ACA) resources have recently been released and are available to support people living with HIV/AIDS and those who serve them. (Please note: AIDS.gov provides links to non-Federal resources in this post. These links do not constitute an endorsement of those resources.)

In addition to these important resources, you can learn more about how the ACA impacts people at risk for or living with HIV/AIDS by reading our fact sheet on the ACA and HIV/AIDS and viewing this video of federal leaders at the 2013 U.S. Conference on AIDS Exit Disclaimer speaking about how implementation of the ACA is supporting efforts to improve HIV prevention, care, and treatment and achieve the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy.

Also, read this blog post about the Greater Than AIDS “Obamacare and You” consumer web portal developed by the Kaiser Family Foundation to help people living with HIV/AIDS learn about their coverage options and how the ACA could affect their care and treatment.

  1. Making sure all HIV+ individuals have health care is critical if we are going to be successful in ending the AIDS epidemic. Without treatment there can be no viral suppression. Of course we need to make sure that every person who is positive for HIV is linked to care and then retained in care. If we can do that then viral suppression will follow. We have all the tools we need right now to end this epidemic but we should not kid ourselves that it can be done amidst a climate of reduced care or funding for care.
