Webinar

Update on ACA Discriminatory Marketplace Exchange Practices

The ADAP Advocacy Association (aaa+®) - in partnership with the Community Access National Network (CANN) and the Great Lakes ADA Center - is pleased to announce its educational webinar, Update on ACA Discriminatory Marketplace Exchange Practices. The webinar, which will be held on Wednesday, December 3rd, is FREE to all stakeholders.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), or the Affordable Care Act (ACA) - also known as Obamacare – is supposed to see most of the law’s major provisions phased in by January 2014, with other provisions phased in by 2020. The ACA will have numerous implications generally on the United State’s health care delivery system, but more specifically on the supports and services afforded to people living with HIV-infection, or viral Hepatitis. What’s more, ongoing Medicaid expansion and the implementation of insurance exchanges will also impact nearly all healthcare providers, as well as their patients. Unfortunately, people living with HIV-infection have experienced some of the unintended consequences of the law - including discriminatory practices limiting their access to care and treatment.

Webinar

Shifting Landscape of HIV Housing & its Impact on Healthcare

The ADAP Advocacy Association (aaa+®) - in partnership with the Community Access National Network (CANN) and the Great Lakes ADA Center - is pleased to announce its educational webinar, Shifting Landscape of HIV Housing & its Impact on Healthcare. The webinar, which will be held on Thursday, October 23rd, is FREE to all stakeholders.

Housing may be the most important factor for successful medical outcomes for those living with HIV/AIDS. Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) is a critical program to help people living with HIV/AIDS with stable affordable housing that isn't available in mainstream housing programs. The Obama administration has proposed significant changes in the HOPWA legislation. Additionally, there are plans by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) to move the HIV/AIDS housing office under the umbrella of the massive homeless programs. This webinar will explain the proposed changes and how they will impact people living with HIV/AIDS who need housing, including how it will undermine the Housing is Healthcare paradigm.
