DC Medical Assistance Administration

Development of HIV Medicaid Expansion Waiver
Period of Performance: 07/30/1999 - 01/31/2001
POI staff collaborated with The Lewin Group to assist the DC Medical Assistance Administration to identify budget-neutral mechanisms to extend Medicaid coverage to uninsured persons infected with HIV. This effort included numerous meetings with staff from MAA, Administration for HIV/AIDS, and DC General as well as community agencies and advocacy groups. POI staff designed a programming algorithm to identify beneficiary records for inclusion in an a database, supervised the conversion of the software to SAS for application to DC Medicaid claims records, reviewed and commented regarding data output, and assisted in development of tabular and written results. POI also contributed to the concept paper and subsequent 1115 waiver application to CMS.
