  • HIV-positive Members: Designating a specialist as PCP


    In September 2010, NYSDOH mandated managed care enrollment for Medicaid beneficiaries with HIV/AIDS. To maximize and improve care coordination, specialists are now encouraged to act as a Member’s primary care physician in individual cases.


    Here is detailed information about the background of this process, who can request the PCP designation; and how the process works.


    Updated credentialing/directory listing for ID/AIDS/HIV providers 

    AIDS/HIV providers may be listed in the Affinity provider directories as Infectious Disease (or their primary practice specialty) providers, or as AIDS/HIV Specialists. They may also be listed in our directory as “HIV Experienced Providers” if they meet certain criteria. Learn more
