|TEEN WITH HIV
Feb 6, 2003
I received a response on my question for my 18 year old niece who is HIV+. The next question is how does she get insurance with a company that she works for without revealing that she is HIV+. Does she lie on her application or do most employers offer insurance benefits without asking questions for persons with HIV/AIDS
Response from Ms. Franzoi
An employer cannot ask questions about a job candidate's medical conditions. They cannot ask what her HIV status is and she would have no need to disclose her status. Once she is employed, she should entroll during the open enrollment period afforded new hires for the benefits she wants.
