Group Says Obamacare Plans Discourage HIV Patients From Enrolling
December 11, 2013
A coalition of 31 HIV/AIDS organizations is urging the Obama administration to investigate whether some health insurers are trying to discourage HIV-infected patients from enrolling in new policies being sold under the health-care law, a move the groups say could be illegal. The Affordable Care Act prohibits discrimination against people who are sick; insurers can't deny them coverage or charge them more than healthier peers. (Beck, The Wall Street Journal, 12/10)
