Understanding and Monitoring the Interrelationships between Funding Stream in Ryan White-Funded Clinical Settings
Client: HIV/AIDS Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA/HAB)
This project, a partnership between Mission Analytics and prime contractor Walter R. McDonald & Associates, Inc. (WRMA), studied how Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program-funded Part C and Part D grantees use multiple funding sources to provide comprehensive HIV/AIDS care. The project included a survey of Part C and D grantees on Ryan White services provided to uninsured and underinsured clients, the dynamics of health care coverage and the interactions among Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance, and HRSA Ryan White funding. The team also developed a prototype tracking tool to assist grantees in monitoring and assessing changes in funding streams by service category. The goal of this tool was to help grantees better plan for shifts in coverage with the onset of the Affordable Care Act.
