7 State ADAP Screening for LIHP On March 1, 2012, the ADAP enrollment/recertification process, accomplished through Ramsell (the ADAP statewide pharmacy benefits manager), began tracking client eligibility for SF PATH New enrollment forms that include SF PATH-related questions have been activated on the Ramsell ADAP enrollment website for San Francisco These forms require the ADAP Enrollment Worker to determine if the client may be eligible for SF PATH and track the client’s SF PATH application process Any ADAP applicant who may qualify for LIHP must be referred to apply to LIHP Access to the updated application can be obtained in the “Forms” section of the Ramsell secure website at: 7 10/2/2014

8 Post ACA Implementation populations that will continue to receive medical services through Ryan White Funding Residually ineligible individuals (undocumented and those documented with resident status of less than five years) Other HIV populations at-risk to be under- served in capitated care systems: Patients with significant behavioral health issues At high risk for falling out of care Often are 86-ed out of multiple programs At higher risk for depression, chaotic substance use, violence and suicide than general population Have limited insight to modify behavior Don’t meet criteria for “mental disability” DSM5 Axis II “Personality Disorder” fixed traits or diagnosis Important to move beyond labels to see what is needed both for patient and system Borderline is often over diagnosed and underdiagnosed Often described as “low threshold patients” HIV elders 8 10/2/2014

9 Continuing Challenges Given uncertainty of RWPA funding in future years Focus on sustainability- if RWP does decrease which services could be integrated into emerging primary care system? Which services categories of service have funding streams in addition to RWP? Use Gardner Cascade as a tool to assist in determining service funding priorities Federal government is placing increased importance on clinical health care outcomes what does the data show for what are considered “support service categories”? 9 10/2/2014

10 Conclusions and Opportunities CY 2014 is a unique opportunity to determine the best way for RWP services and funding can wrap around ACA services HHS can help ensure successful payer transitions while maintaining continuity of care both of which will be a more immediate and on- going need HHS will focus on reviewing and potentially expanding services within a given service category as well as expanded and new uses of existing RW service categories HHSPC should sustain and improve the strength and coordination of multiple partnerships : HIV Care and Prevention Services.
