Medicaid Managed Care for People With HIV in New York City

Spring 2010

In August, 2010, the Department of Health will begin to expand mandatory managed care enrollment in NYC to Medicaid beneficiaries with HIV. People with HIV who are currently exempt based on their HIV infection will no longer be considered exempt from mandatory enrollment in Medicaid managed care. HIV-positive people with Medicare, ADAP, other Medicaid exemptions or exclusions, or private insurance will not be affected by this change.
