In Minnesota, about 6,200 people are known to be infected with HIV. The HIV/AIDS Unit of the Minnesota Department of Human Services manages publicly-funded programs that support people living with HIV/AIDS to access life-extending medication therapy and medical care. The HIV/AIDS Unit Services, commonly referred to as Program HH Services, provide access to HIV medications, insurance benefits, dental services, mental health services and nutrition services for HIV-positive persons who meet program eligibility guidelines.
Change regarding fee-for-service payments for clients enrolled on HH with other health care coverage
Effective January 1, 2012, Program HH will no longer pay third party copays for recipients when the third party payer has paid equal to or more than the MHCP allowable. Do not bill the recipient for the third party copay amount (see MHCP Reimbursement is Payment in Full).
In addition, beginning January 1, 2013 Program HH will no longer pay for mental health visits for clients dually enrolled in Medical Assistance and Program HH who have a pre-paid health plan (PPHP) and are seeing out-of-network providers. Clients and providers will need to work together to find providers who are a part of the client’s PPHP network.
HIV/AIDS Unit Quarterly Stakeholders Calls
Program HH hosts quarterly calls for our stakeholders. The purpose of these calls is to share information, answer questions and get feedback from stakeholders about Program HH services, policy changes, funding updates and the status of the ADAP Program. These calls are open to consumers and service providers. The next call is scheduled for Thursday, May 23rd. Detailed information for how to access the call is contained in the call flyer.
