Possible HIV, School, Meds, Advice???
      #17729 - 05/06/01 09:18 AM

Hello. I am currently in college and about to ente rmy last semester. I am going to go get tested soon, but I am afraid. Apart for the obvious reasons to worry, I am also worrying about treatment is I test +. THe treatments I know are very effective, but they are dangerously expensive and I am basically a poor college student. My parents are working class, basically. I am insured under them for about another year. I think Medicaid, which I may need since I don't have a steayd income, would pay for meds, but sadly, I think one has to have full blown AIDS to get Medicaid for combination therapy. I am majoring in a liberal arts subject, so my career prospects are not very high on the moneywise scale (hey, I didn't think I was going to mistakenly put myself at risk 3 1/2 years ago). Would any of you all quit college if you all tested positive, in order to get a full time job to pay for the medications? Does anybody have any information on Medicaid and does it now cover HIV+ people without full blown AIDS?
