Supporting the Continuum of Care: Building Ryan White Program Grantee Capacity to Enroll Eligible Clients in Affordable Care Act Health Coverage Programs
Grant Amount: Approximately $1,900,000 is expected to be available annually to fund one grantee.
The purpose of Supporting the Continuum of Care: Building Ryan White Program Grantee Capacity to Enroll Eligible Clients in ACA Supported Health Coverage is to build the capacity of RWHAP grantees and related providers to provide outreach to PLWH and to screen and enroll eligible PLWH in expanded health insurance during the annual open enrollment period beginning in October 2013. The announcement will fund one Cooperative Agreement to provide technical assistance to accomplish three main objectives: (1) assess RWHAP grantees’ technical assistance needs related to building capacity for outreach and enrollment of minority PLWH into expanded health insurance options; (2) work with HRSA, CDC, SAMSHA and CMS to assess best practices for minority client outreach and enrollment activities that would facilitate access to health care in the Medicaid expansion and Health Insurance Marketplaces (Exchanges); and (3) work with HHS agencies and national organization partners to develop strategies, tools, and trainings for RWHAP grantees to utilize for outreach and enrollment activities.
The geographic range of the proposal is nationwide and will focus on the racial and ethnic minority clients currently served by the RWHAP. The main activities for the three objectives are: (1) To assess RWHAP grantees’ technical assistance needs related to building capacity for outreach and enrollment of minority PLWH into expanded health insurance options; (2) To work with HRSA, CDC, SAMSHA and CMS to assess best practices for minority client outreach and enrollment activities that would facilitate access to health care in the Medicaid expansion and Health Insurance Marketplaces (Exchanges); (3) Work with HHS agencies and national organization partners to develop strategies, tools, and trainings for RWHAP grantees to utilize for outreach and enrollment activities.
