Reengagement in Care After a Gap in HIV Care Among a Population of Privately Insured Persons with HIV in the United States 6 months and reengagement as ≥1 office visit claim after a gap. Cox proportional hazards models were conducted to determine factors associated with time to first gap and time to reengagement. Of 5142 persons in the study, 79% were males and median age was 46 years (range, 19-64 years). No race/ethnicity data were available. Thirty percent (n = 1555) experienced a gap. Median time to first gap was 15 months (IQR: 6-30). Median gap length was 3.2 months. Seventy percent with a gap reengaged; 22% reengaged more than once. Of 1086 patients who reengaged, 224 (21%) eventually had a terminal gap. Residence in the North Central region (HR 0.73, 95% CI 0.62-0.87) and having ≥1 Charlson comorbidities (HR 0.85, 95% CI 0.73-0.99) were associated with shorter time to reengagement. The majority who experienced a gap reengaged within a relatively short period and remained in the cohort at 60 months. However, 21% of those reengaging had a terminal gap by 60 months, which should alert providers to the eventual potential for loss to follow-up. The analysis was limited by inability to distinguish between HIV-specific and non-HIV-specific care visits.'>
