Policy Brief: Integrating HIV Prevention Services Into the Clinical Care Setting in Medicaid and Ryan White CARE Act Programs: Legal, Financial, and Organizational Issues

This policy brief, prepared by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the George Washington University Center for Health Services Research and Policy, examines the opportunities and challenges associated with the delivery of HIV prevention services in, or closely linked to, the clinical care setting. It focuses on two of the major public programs for HIV care in the U.S., Medicaid and the Ryan White CARE Act. The brief assesses the extent to which current law allows the provision of prevention within these programs and examines current practice. It also outlines several options for research, technical assistance, and policy that could serve to enhance opportunities for integration of HIV prevention and care.
