State Roundup: Georgia -- "Federal Rule Change Rocks HIV Programs"
May 29, 2012
"HIV/AIDS service programs say a rule change by a federal agency would squeeze their budgets to the point that they may not be able to serve as many patients. The Health Resources and Services Administration is now requiring that rent, utilities and insurance costs be classified as administrative expenses under parts of the federal Ryan White HIV/AIDS program. As such, these costs will be charged to the administrative cap of 10 percent of the total amount awarded. That means many HIV service programs will have to seek other ways to cover those expenses." (Georgia Health News, Miller 5/28)
