Ryan White & the Affordable Care Act: What You Need to Know
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is an historic opportunity for people living with HIV (PLWH), including those currently receiving services through the Ryan White Program, to increase their access to affordable, quality health care. Many Ryan White clients will gain access to health insurance or see their current health insurance improve. These transitions will require thoughtful and careful coordination between the federal government, state and local governments, Ryan White Program grantees, and clients.
HRSA will continue partnering with you to ensure uninterrupted comprehensive care for our clients. We invite you to use this site as a resource to help guide you as we approach full implementation of the law in 2014.
