Health Insurance Contracting for HIV Prevention Services: From Barriers to Billing

Register Exit Disclaimer

This webinar is designed for community-based organizations (CBOs) seeking reimbursement from health insurers for HIV prevention services and those expanding access to HIV counseling and testing among insured groups. HealthHIV’s Effective Contracting with Health Insurers for HIV Prevention Services guidebook will be presented. Webinar objectives are to: 1) increase knowledge about how commercial health insurers, Medicaid programs, and Medicare commonly pay for HIV prevention services; 2) expand awareness of the types of HIV prevention services that may be paid by health insurers; 3) increase awareness of potential barriers to direct payment for HIV prevention services by health insurers; and 4) offer strategies for advocating for payment of HIV prevention services provided by non-clinical HIV prevention workers.

The webinar will provide a foundational overview of Medicaid programs and commercial health insurers, including managed care plans, payment methods, types of organizations eligible to participate as provider network members for payment, and emerging innovative approaches to delivering prevention services.

Introduction and Overview of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis

THU FEB 26 2015

3:00–4:00 p.m. (EST)

PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis and it is a biomedical method to prevent HIV infection.  When a person is prescribed PrEP by a medical provider, he/she will take certain HIV medications that, when taken daily, have been shown to be highly effective against acquiring HIV during sexual intercourse.  Comprehensive clinical practice guidelines for PrEP were released in May of 2014, and it remains innovative to many communities and providers who have not been exposed to education or information on PrEP.  With the articulation of the HIV Treatment Continuum three years ago, there is a heightened focus on the importance of PrEP as a primary HIV prevention strategy.  This webinar intends to offer basic information about PrEP and answer a series of questions, such as where can Native people obtain PrEP, who is eligible to obtain PrEP, and does Indian Health Service offer PrEP.
