No insurance
Aug 28, 2003

I think that I may have had recent contact with and HIV + individual. I currently don't have health insurance. I read in one of your other responses that HIV test is a condition. If I am now positive, what do I do? What if I can't afford the doctor's visits or drugs? Please help.

Response from Ms. Franzoi

Contact a local insurance broker to find out which individual plans are available in your area. Then choose a plan, fill out the application and submit it. Answer the questions honestly. Applications will have a question re your HIV status but they typically do not require you to get an HIV test.
