This initiative seeks to develop strategies to build capacity among HIV surveillance and Medicaid programs for reporting high-quality HIV viral suppression data to comply with reporting of the HIV Viral Load Suppression (HVL-AD) measure on the Medicaid Adult Core Set. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Child and Adult Core Set Annual Review Workgroup has encouraged efforts to create partnerships among federal agencies (CMS, Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention (CDC), and HRSA); Medicaid and public health agencies; and managed care plans to help states gain access to the laboratory data required to measure viral suppression. Recommendations from the workgroup include the sharing of information and lessons learned across states as necessary. This initiative seeks to support the implementation of the recommendations from the HIV/AIDS Health Improvement Affinity Group (HHIAG) with the ultimate goals of improving health outcomes for people with HIV through more efficient and complete strategies in the reporting of viral suppression measures.
