Your info is out-dated!!!
Jul 13, 2012

You should update your info because I called every ins co. you have on your site and NONE insure HIV+ people!!!!!

Response from Mr. Chambers

I assume you are looking at the advertisements added by insurance companies, and I agree, they will probably not be accepting people with HIV.

Until ACA fully kicks in January 1, 2014, there are only two sources I know of for acquiring quality health insurance. I'm ignoring those websites that promise to cover anyone regardless of pre-existing conditions, because if they do cover you, the benefits are very limited.

If you have been without health insurance for at least six months and have HIV, which makes you "uninsurable," you are eligible for the Pre-Existing Conditions Insurance Plan (PCIP) which is now available in all states. Learn more here.

Thirty-three states also offer high risk health insurance plans which you may be eligible for. Click here for more information. Click here for more information.
