Short Description
This funding opportunity continues to build 3rd party billing capacity for Routine HIV screening and HIV prevention services, primarily for Local Health Departments (LHD), Community- Based organizations (CBO) and healthcare providers (HCP). Developing the capacity to bill Medicaid, Medicare and private insurance for routine HIV screening and HIV prevention services is necessary to expand services to fill service gaps in high incidence geographic areas resulting in late diagnoses, unsuppressed viral loads, and HIV transmission. And as available federal and state appropriations for HIV services become less certain, building capacity for Local Health Departments, Community-based organizations, and healthcare providers is critical to sustain these vital services.

Objectives and Goals
Through this funding opportunity, the grantee will provide Local Health Departments, Community-based organizations and healthcare providers with 3rd party billing tools, systems and skill sets which can generate funding from 3rd party payers to for services previously supported only by federal grant funding. Building the capacity of healthcare providers to access 3rd party payer sources generates new funding to sustain routine HIV screening and other HIV prevention services regardless of the availability of grant funding. Through LHD and CBO engagement, more HIV positive people can be promptly diagnosed and provided quality health services, resulting in improved healthcare outcomes, increased HIV viral suppression, and decreased HIV transmission.
