HIV-related health care services have historically been covered or provided by a patchwork of federal, state, and local programs, such as Medicare, Medicaid, and the Ryan White Program, and state and local health programs. AIDS service organizations and private and charitable health organizations also provided services for HIV patients without coverage. These programs represent the long-standing pathways to insurance coverage, access to care, and access to treatment for people with HIV. Some of these programs also supply coverage for or access to medications that treat co-occurring conditions for people with HIV. Following the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, availability of health coverage for HIV patients was greatly expanded in the United States. However, challenges such as affordability and access to treatments still remain.
