finding insurance
Aug 7, 2004

I recently moved to a new state and have been diagnosed for 8 years. I am afraid to start treatment but I know I need to.I am not sure where to go to get help, but I know I don't qualify for any state funded insurance. What other options do I have? I had bad experiences with the health department in my old home town. They would call me often and show up at inappropriate times (my case manager). Are there any alternatives to dealing with a public health nurse?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

It's difficult to answer your question in specifics, because there are many state and local differences to access to care.

Contact a local AIDS service organization (check out or the yellow pages); I'm pretty sure you'll be able to find someone to help you.

Good luck, BY
