Is it true people with HIV can get Health Insurance?
Jun 9, 1997

I don't have health insurance. I heard that HIV is now considered a managable disease and thus applying for insurance and paying for it is possible? Is this true?

Response from Ms. Franzoi

Yes. Some insurance carriers are extending coverage to HIV positive individuals. I know that Blue Cross in California will cover HIV positive individuals in their Level III plan.

If I divorce him can he still get coverage?
