North Carolina ACA Update: Looking Toward Year 2, 10/24/14 - Allison Rice, Duke Law School
This tool is useful for a patient who receives insurance enrollment assistance outside the HIV clinic, from a Navigator, Certified Application Counselor, or insurance broker who may not be familiar with the Ryan White and ADAP program. These enrollment assisters may not realize that a patient who is unable to afford insurance still has a fallback means of obtaining care.

Insurance Screener (updated for 2015)
The Insurance Screener is a tool that can be used by clinic staff to get a rough idea of which patients may qualify for ACA insurance subsidies, who is required to have insurance, and who might be exempt. The screener is a starting place and regardless of results, patients should be encouraged to go online to healthcare.gov to get an official determination.
This is a Google doc (so you will need a Google account to access it) in which the Duke AIDS Legal Project has collected the details of all plans offered in North Carolina, including a comparison of the drug formularies to the ADAP formulary.
