Any good free care in New Orleans LA?
      #207629 - 09/18/06 12:15 PM

Hello,
Thinking about moving back to New Orleans but scared what to do about Drs. I have a great Dr where I live now and he is one of the top docs in the state. I know I shouldn;t leave him but unfortuantly the state that I live in is killing me. I hate it here. I need to choose my happiness. So now what do I do? I don't have any health insurance. I'm only 23 so still healthy and not on meds but dont have much faith in the LA state health care system as I know how it runs. any suggestions to make sure I can still get good care and stay healthy? thanks

If you have friends or family in New Orleans I would contact them and ask about the services that have been restored. If you dont know anyone, perhaps someone on these boards can help.
Its pretty tough not having insurane. How are you handling that now?

Now is the best time to think about the future. Can you get a job with benefits? How about going back to school and get some training?
Yes Ryan White funds help a LOT of people who cannot afford meds. I have no idea what services New Orleans has restored to the HIV community.

I live in West Monroe, La and i get free care from LSU Hospital, not sure if they are back up and running down there yet. I get all my meds free as well, no insurance here at all.
