New Massachusetts Law
May 9, 2006

How does the new Massachusetts law (just passed) affect people with HIV? For example, if I have my own business and want to buy health insurance, does this law help me in terms of a affordability?

Response from Ms. Franzoi

It requires plans to be available and individuals to obtain coverage. How that coverage will work, I do not know. I suggest that you contact the state insurance commissioner in Massachusetts to get more detailed information on what plans will be available, what the plan provisions will be, what limitations there will be on coverage and what the associated costs will be.
