Insurance before testing?
Dec 30, 2005


Is is a good idea to apply for health care benefits before testing? I live in Vancouver, Canada, and I was under the impression that hiv medications are covered by the government, is this true or will all the cash be coming from my pocket? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Young

I'm not Canadian (though sometimes wish I was), but it's my understanding that HIV medications are provided at no cost to Canadian citizens. There are world-class HIV physicians in Vancouver, like's own Dr. Brian Conway. BY
