In their April, 2015 Newsletter, Oregon Health Authority featured HIV Alliance and its clinical pharmacist, Geoff L’Hereux in its “Transformation Station” section. The article acknowledges the wonderful work being done by L’Hereux and HIV Alliance as they work with CCOs to provide clients with better medicine at affordable rates. These medicstions do end up being more costly up front, but overall they save CCOs and clients money down the road because they involve less pills, are easier to tolerate, and minimize side effects as well as provider visits.

Medicare covers services (like lab tests, surgeries, and doctor visits) and supplies (like wheelchairs and walkers) considered medically necessary to treat a disease or condition. If you’re in a Medicare Advantage Plan or other Medicare plan, you may have different rules, but your plan must give you at least the same coverage as Original Medicare. Some services may only be covered in certain settings or for patients with certain conditions.
Medicare is funded through two trust accounts held by the U.S. Treasury:

Why did you choose to work for HIV Alliance? I was in a class at LCC and the speaker was from HIV Alliance. She shared with the group the philosophy used at HIV Alliance – Harm Reduction and Client Centered Care. It was the first time I heard about an organization that really embraced these values and truly met individuals where they were in life. I began to volunteer in the kitchen, serving dinner to people living with HIV and they shared their stories with me. Their stories, their struggles, their loss and their perseverance had such a deep impression on me.
I also volunteered at the needle exchange because I had experiences with addiction and recovery and it led me to believe that the harm reduction approach would keep people and communities safer. From my first day here I have been honored to work for the communities we serve and for an agency that has never lost sight of its mission.
Who is your hero? And why? My mom is my hero. She has overcome huge obstacles in her life and has such a depth of compassion.
What is one fact that is not known about you? My family calls me Na-Na.
If you weren’t doing what you do today, what other job would you have? Something that would allow me to travel internationally.
