overview

As the health care landscape continues to shift, HIV and hepatitis providers are adapting to and innovating with this changing environment to understand the impact of federal, state, and local policy changes on their practices and clients and ensure they remain relevant and sustainable. State and local health departments are also adapting their internal structures and infrastructure to respond to shifts in resources, science, and the needs of providers in their jurisdictions. Our provider sustainability resources and technical assistance provide information and best practices to support health department infrastructure and efforts to engage, prepare, and support HIV, hepatitis, and drug user health providers (particularly non-clinical community-based organizations) to navigate the changing health care landscape. Focus areas include educating stakeholders about the impact of health policy changes on providers and clients, and identifying contracting, financing, and billing and reimbursement strategies through public and private payers for community-based services.
