When i relocate back to the usa...?
Jul 15, 2007
Me and my partner, have been living abroad for the past 24 years. We are both HIV positive, and on medication.We will be relocating to Mesa Arizona, in October. We have very limited funds. What will happen if we cannot afford the medication, in the usa? Is it free, like Europe? HELP-thanks...Bob

Thanks for your post, Bob.
The situation in the states depends on employment (whether or not the employer offers group health insurance) and income level (for those looking for government- or pharmaceutical-assistance). In many cases, medications can be had for copayments or "free" to the patient.
When you know exactly where you're headed, I'd contact the local AIDS service organization for advice.
Hope this helps, BY
