The passage of the Affordable Care Act significantly expanded medical insurance coverage to many Americans and has subsequently shifted the health care landscape and the way in which health care is accessed, delivered, and reimbursed. The provision of prevention, testing, care, treatment, and support services for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), sexually transmitted infections (STI), and viral hepatitis (VH) has been similarly affected. These changes require those of us who are providers to expand our knowledge in health care financing, including medical billing and coding.
This guide complements the NASTAD Billing and Coding Guide for HIV Prevention.
