Dr. Kathleen Clanon submitted written testimony on behalf of the Ryan White Medical Providers Coalition to U.S. House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies Regarding Part C of the Ryan White Program at the HIV/AIDS Bureau of the Health Resources and Services Administration in the Department of Health and Human Services.
Thank you for the opportunity to discuss the important HIV/AIDS care conducted at Ryan White Part C funded programs nationwide. Specifically, the Ryan White Medical Provider Coalition, the HIV Medicine Association, the CAEAR Coalition, and the American Academy of HIV Medicine estimate that approximately $461 million is needed to provide the standard of care for all Part C program patients. (This estimate is based on the current cost of care and the number of patients that Part C clinics serve.) Because these are exceptionally challenging economic times, we request $285.8 million for Ryan White Part C programs in FY 13, the authorized amount that Congress legislated for Part C programs in its 2009 reauthorization of the Ryan White Program.
