Can i still get health insurance once diagnosed?
Nov 2, 2010

My Boyfriend and i was just diagnosed with HIV/AIDS a few months ago. Luckly me, i have health insurance, and it is covering a good portion of my billing. My Boyfriend however , has none. Do you think it would be hard for him to Now get Health insurance now that he has HIV?

Response from Ms. Franzoi

yes. His best option would be to get a job which offers health benefits and enroll in the plan. If your job provides for domestic partner coverage, you could enroll him.

Should 2nd opinion be delayed until can be on insurance?
