Tell the White House to Ensure HIV Coverage Under Obamacare

February 13, 2014

Tell the White House to Ensure HIV Coverage Under Obamacare

The Affordable Care Act holds great promise to dramatically improve access to health care and treatment for people with HIV. However, many qualified health plans are not making all approved HIV medications available or are not providing affordable access to these essential medications.

Lend your voice to help ensure people with HIV are fully included in the coverage promised by The Affordable Care Act. Send this letter to President Obama & Secretary Sebelius demanding swift action to remove barriers to HIV treatment under Obamacare. And you can invite your friends to take action by sharing this link: http://support.projectinform.org/obamacare

Please also support Project Inform's vigorous advocacy and education programs by making a donation here. Your contribution will help ensure people with HIV have robust access to care and treatment.

Thank you for helping us make a difference!

It's extremely important that all plans cover HIV medications. The cost of the medications without the help of the insurance plan is impossible to cover unless you make more than $150,000 a year and still be able to make a living. Most people do not make this much so they cannot afford the HIV medications that save their lives. Please ensure that all plans cover these life saving medications at a reasonable price.

Some of us Long Term HIV Positives who publicly joined the movement for comprehensive healthcare reform --Obamacare--were helped while others (like me) were not. Please see that HIV patients in every state get the HIV care they need, sooner, not later. Don't let up on those who undermine Ryan White access to meds (though I have never been a recipient personally). Thank-you

The Health Care Problem in the US is out of control. Please explain to the American Public how the US Government can make tax payers pay into social security - and then send that money to private HMO and PPO's. This is a disgrace and the Truth needs to me told to the American Public. These so called "Managed Health Care Providers" are receiving our money (the tax payers) and then denying persons coverage based on profit. This process has allowed HMO and PPOs to build a strong network of Hospitals, Hospitalists, Doctors and specialists to funnel the tax payers into their network, allowing them to create an extremely profitable industry at the tax payers funding. This is evident by amount of new ACCESS Doctor's offices opening in Hernando County, Florida. This network of includes Optimum HMO, Access Health, Dan Poland, area Hospitals, area Rehabilitation hospitals. These so call "managed health care providers" have the ability to determine what they will cover and have denied coverage to persons who need it. What the Freak?
