The Affordable Care Act and HIV:  Maximizing Opportunities for Coverage and Care Jeffrey S. Crowley, Program Director of the National HIV/AIDS Initiative at Georgetown Law, and former director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy, leads a discussion on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and its implications for the care and coverage of people living with HIV/AIDS.  With the ACA, there is great potential for people with HIV to access a more stable and affordable system of care, and for people at high risk for HIV to gain more access to testing and prevention methods.  Mr. Crowley explains the key provisions in the ACA related to HIV care and treatment, and discusses how Ryan White and Medicaid coverage are affected.  Given the highly disproportionate rates of HIV in gay/bisexual men's and transgender women's communities, these changes brought about by the ACA stand to make a positive and significant impact on LGBT health outcomes for the future.
