APLA and UCLA PAETC will be doing some ACA & HIV trainings in the coming year in different California cities.
One goal is to provide more than just the 60-90 minute updates most HIV providers have been receiving.
We will be piloting the training in LA at APLA next Monday, December 16 (see attached agenda.)
Is anyone with mental health expertise from the task force interested in being on the 2:00 pm panel?
We need someone who can talk BRIEFLY about MENTAL HEALTH and the ACA for people with HIV.
Someone who can speak to benefits and challenges of mental health services in MediCal Managed Care and Covered California plans would be great.
For example what co-pays might someone have to face who is going from Ryan White to a Covered California plan? What are the implications?
If any of you have feedback on this topic, please feel free to email the 3 me as well, even if you can’t participate in the pilot training.
Feel free to call me with any questions.
If someone is interested, please email me and include Luke and Brian in your response (copied here—I think you may know Brian from the HepC Task Force?) so we know who is confirmed for the panel.
If you are a yes, and want to participate in the full day, please let them know that as well.
