January 7, 2014

The law requires private insurers to cover them and others with pre-existing conditions and bars companies from charging patients more because of their illness. HIV-positive patients can also buy coverage through insurance marketplaces, often with the help of federal subsidies. And the law allows states to expand their Medicaid programs to cover low-income HIV patients who were not previously" (Gorman and Rao, 1/7). Read the story.
