Join Dose of Change, the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation of Harvard Law School & the Treatment Access Expansion Project for a special webinar for HIV and health care access advocates:

Full implementation of health care reform -- including the Medicaid expansion and roll out of state-based health insurance exchanges -- means that thousands of people living with HIV will gain access to public and private insurance in 2014. However, we are in the midst of an unprecedented access to care and public health crisis right now, and people living with HIV simply cannot wait until 2014 to gain access to lifesaving care and treatment. We will update advocates on important opportunities to build a bridge to 2014 and immediately expand health care access to people living with HIV and AIDS.

Here's the agenda:

Part 1: Why We Need a Bridge to 2014

Part 2: Opportunities for Building the Bridge to 2014

  • Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plans
  • 1115 Medicaid Waivers
  • Medicaid Health Home Option

Part 3: Next Steps for Advocates
