no insurance and HIV positive
Sep 12, 2006

I am 27years old recently tested positive for hiv. i had health insurance through my job and got terminated. been off hiv meds for 3 months were can i get hiv meds and treatment if i don't have any insurance.

Response from Ms. Franzoi

When you were terminated from your job, you should've applied for COBRA coverage so that you could continue to get your needed medical treatment. Since you did not, I am not sure what might be available to you. Check into any medical assistance programs in your state, possibly Medicaid, to see if you qualify. Also, check with local clinics to see if they can direct you to any resources.
