Subseries: Medicaid Expansion, 1994-1997
Biography/History: ARCW lobbied the federal Health Care Financing Administration to expand the Medicaid program to include low-income, newly diagnosed individuals with HIV disease. With costly new HIV treatments patients needed early medical intervention to avoid progression to AIDS, to remain healthy and to avoid intensive and costly AIDS treatments. By changing the Medicaid eligibility policy to eliminate the disability requirement and to expand coverage to all low income HIV patients, Medicaid would help to assure HIV patient access to essential care thus reducing progression to AIDS and treatments that would be costly for Medicaid.
