What kind of insurance I can choose?
Jan 28, 2012

Hi, I am in Asia and often come back to the states.What kind of insurance I could use in the international hospital in Asia and in the states at my positive status.Thanks!If I want to do sperm washing and artificial insemination,what kind of insurance will work?Thanks again!

Response from Mr. Chambers

Other than getting insurance from an employer in the US, there are very few policies that would cover and HIV+ person, just some government programs like the Pre-Existing Conditions Insurance Plan or state Pooled Insurance plans. Another problem could be that even with health insurance, many would refuse to cover voluntary procedures like sperm washing. It would depend on the plan.
