Together, this information will help HAB understand the abilities of Part C and Part D grantees to support and track expanded health insurance enrollment for their clients and to adapt to the changing funding landscape. The study will also collect information on what processes are used and what types of data are stored within their data information systems. Information about data information systems will be used to support the development of a technical assistance tracker for RWHAP grantees to monitor and assess changes in the mix of funding sources used to pay for primary health care and essential support services to PLWHA as the ACA is fully implemented. Lastly, the study will gather information regarding Part C and Part D grantees’ level of participation in statesponsored initiatives for the development of health homes, their relationship with managed care organizations, and their status regarding recognition as a Patient Centered Medical Home. This information will provide some basic information regarding grantees’ abilities to continue to service PLWHA as the ACA is implemented differently among the states. The Ryan White Funding Streams Survey (Survey) will be used to collect this information. The survey will collect both qualitative and quantitative data and will be administered online to program directors from a representative sample of Part C and Part D grantees. The Survey contains 32 questions that capture information about the different funding streams used for the provision of services to PLWHA; grantees’ abilities to track health insurance, funding sources, and costs of care; and their relationship with managed care organizations. The data provided through the survey will not contain individual or personally identifiable information. This information will inform HAB in the development of future RWHAP policy. It will also assist HAB in the final development of the technical assistance tracking tool for grantees. 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.
