The AIDS Institute files an HIV/AIDS Discrimination Complaint Against Four Florida Health Insurers

At LTAI, we thought it important to bring attention to a serious issue of discrimination in Florida. A lawsuit was brought against four health insurance companies in Florida which are being charged with discriminating against patients living with HIV, including higher co-pays on all HIV medications. Those companies area: CoventryOne, Cigna, Humana and Preferred Medical. Those bringing the law suit believe that these insurance companies actions are an attempt to steer people living with HIV/AIDS away from their insurance programs, a clear violation of the Affordable Care Act!

Thanks to a LTAI Peer Advocate and blogger for bringing this article to our attention! If you have insurance with these companies, you might want to learn more about what this might mean for you and your medical care!
