A new web portal has just launched to help people with HIV navigate through the new healthcare law. Obamacare and You is an on-line resource dedicated to the specific needs of people with HIV and AIDS looking for health care coverage. Supported by Gilead Sciences, Inc., the site is presented as a part of the Greater Than AIDS initiative in conjunction with Kaiser Family Foundation and the Black AIDS Institute.

The site offers a variety of features to help you get some answers such as

The user-friendly site is interactive and will more than likely answer many of the questions visitors may have about HIV and coverage, Medicaid, Medicare, what to do if they have private insurance, or what if they are completely uninsured.

Visit the Obamacare and You website to learn more. And share with your networks.
