Abstract

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection /Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) has transitioned into a complex chronic condition in the United States. HIV/AIDS often occurs in socially disadvantaged persons with coexisting mental or behavioral health problems. Individuals among these populations commonly seek care and support from a variety of health care and social service providers. Community-based organizations (CBO’s) are one example of social service providers often located in separate physical locations from medical treatment centers. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) contains several components to improve the coordination of healthcare providers and ultimately reduce costs. Medicaid Health Homes are a specific provision of the Affordable Care Act providing coordinated, comprehensive care among providers for persons with a combination of mental health, substance use, and chronic conditions such as HIV/AIDS. Innovative models of care with a focus on coordination of HIV/AIDS services is important to the field of public health in order to retain individuals in treatment and reduce the viral load of HIV/AIDS in the community. States must receive approval for Medicaid Health Homes and develop operational definitions, and regulations. Proposed methods of implementation by states may influence the importance and viability of CBO’s currently serving the HIV/AIDS population. This paper will explore the state plan amendments of New York, Alabama, and Wisconsin.
