Paying for Facial fillers!
Apr 10, 2010

I am hiv poz and I have some facial wasting. I am on a limited income. Please tell me if you can help me. Thank you!

Response from Dr. Pierone

Hello and thanks for posting.

The good news is that Medicare recently approved coverage of facial fillers for treatment of HIV-related lipoatrophy. The details of coverage are not available yet, but within the next month we should learn more.

If you do not have Medicare coverage, the patient assistance programs are in place.

Stay tuned!
