Dear Trump and Congress: Here's 4 Ways to Sustain Health Insurance Protections for People With HIV

March 10, 2017

Calling on Congress and the administration to save health care for people with HIV

Calling on Congress and the administration to save health care for people with HIV:

AIDS United, NASTAD, the National Coalition of STD Directors, NMAC and The AIDS Institute oppose the repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare).

They say the American Health Care Act (AHCA or Trumpcare) would "sharply reverse progress that has been made over the years in reducing new HIV infections and providing access to affordable, high-quality, and life-saving care and treatment for people living with HIV," according to a shared statement from the groups.

"The American Health Care Act would substantially decrease coverage options and increase insurance costs for people living with HIV and decrease [sexually transmitted disease] STD screening and treatment through reduced insurance access," they say.
