New Web Portal Explains the Affordable Care Act for People With HIV

November 6, 2013

This article was reported by the eNews Park Forest.

eNews Park Forest recently reported that the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) launched a new web portal, "Obamacare & You," designed to assist HIV-infected people in understanding potential health insurance changes that would result from the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

HIV-infected people would be among those most likely to benefit from ACA reforms that would remove annual and lifetime spending limits and prohibit insurance companies from denying health coverage because of pre-existing conditions. KFF also expected more low-income HIV-infected people to seek Medicaid assistance in states that chose to expand coverage.

Your article noting that the Kaiser family site "Obamacare & You" is tailored towards people with HIV is not true, or the link in the article is not correct. The site is a general site and as close as it gets is "Pre-existing condition." I am searching for information on whether any of the ACA plans significantly cover HIV meds. Can't find that information.
