Download as PDF 41405 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 132 / Wednesday, July 10, 2013 / Notices examine 1115 Medicaid waivers that have expanded eligibility to include specifically people living with HIV/ AIDS (PLWH) who are not otherwise eligible for Medicaid services. Since 1990, the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) has provided funding for primary care, medications, and support services for PLWH, helping fill the health care and service gap for those who are uninsured or ineligible for Medicaid. As part of this project, case studies will be conducted in eight states that have implemented 1115 Medicaid waivers to expand Medicaid eligibility for PLWH. The case studies will include site visits and discussions with the state Medicaid programs and with RWHAP grantees and service providers to examine the waivers and their impact on PLWH. In addition, the studies will explore whether and how the 1115 Medicaid waivers have helped states and RWHAP grantees and providers prepare for implementation of the Affordable Care Act, including providing insights into Medicaid expansion. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Given the important role of the RWHAP and Medicaid in meeting the health care needs of PLWH, there is a need to understand better, how Medicaid expansion and the 1115 Medicaid waivers will affect the RWHAP and how the waivers have prepared states for implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Likely Respondents: Data will be collected through qualitative interviews, guided by discussion tools with questions tailored for four specific groups of individuals from: (1) State Medicaid agencies; (2) RWHAP Part B grantees and service providers; (3) RWHAP Part A grantees and service providers; and (4) and RWHAP White Part C grantees and clinical providers. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
