HIV positive and about to have no health insurance?
Apr 23, 2010

I found out I was HIV positive and had medical health insurance with my job. I was recently laid off in November of 2009 and was told that I would have coverage until the end of the year. My question is "What do I do next in order to keep my insurance that I already have?" "Will the cost go up?" and "What is the next step I should be taking?"

Response from Ms. Franzoi

Take COBRA coverage when it is offered.

No Insurance...Options?
Aetna Triples Co-Pay for Atripla
