Nov. 15: Do the Waive -- Free Webinar on Cash for State HIV Care!
November 12, 2010
This article was provided by the HIV Prevention Justice Alliance.
Right now, states could ask for a waiver so people with HIV could get Medicaid BEFORE they become disabled. State contributions to that care would get Federal matching dollars to stretch further -- AND people could get off ADAP waiting lists ...

Join our friends at Dose of Change for a training call on this issue. All the info you need is below:
