Paying for Meds
      11/11/11 07:10 PM

Hi Everyone

I really need some help, advice, assurance. I'm very upset right now. My Husband and I were both diagnosed poz last Tuesday 11/1. We had our first appointment with the Infectuous Disease Specialist office yesterday and they were amazing. We are very lucky.
HOWEVER....we're likely about to hit a wall with ADAP. My Husband is a teacher and our nurse explained most teacher's insurance's are very fickle when it comes to hiv med prescriptions.
We are a 2 person household. We struggle to pay our bills like most people these days and my husband took on extra work (in addition to my odd jobs here and there) to make more money. This is putting us past the cut off for the 2 person income mark.
Why don't they consider that there are 2 of us needing meds though. Why don't they consider the significant amount of money my husband pays each month in child support. Or will they???

To top it all off my case manager just called to say I am likely going to be covered by ADAP. But most likely, my Husband is not. I was at work and couldn't really talk to him much more but it felt like I was punched in the stomach, Part of me wants to be happy I'll be covered but I can't because what if he wont be.

Are there ANY other options? If so what could we be looking at financially here?

I'm so scared.
