Is Your Medical And Pharmacy Insurance Important To You When Choosing A New President?

Is Your Medical And Pharmacy Insurance Important To You When Choosing A New President?

Will your Medicaid, Medicare, Ryan White, ADAP or other private insurances.
and their premiums and coverage.. matter when selecting our next president?

Is there any question as to yes being the answer? Unless we are millionaires, (God know I am not), we are all dependent on some form of government help to pay for our meds and other things HIV/AIDS. One medication for my HIV/AIDS is over $3000.00 alone. I would never be able to pay for that our of what I make per month! I want a president who will lower my drug rates, add to my insurance potential and coverage, while making healthcare easier to maintain and afford. I understand that some are not happy with Obamacare; well it is better than nothing!! And better than what the current president is offering like a lot less than what we have now and a lot higher. Granted Obamacare is not great; it does have it's flaws, but we do have something that will protect those with pre-existing conditions, a safety net, to get insurance. The others I have seen just make it harder to get and more to pay because of pre-existing conditions.

I agree with gabriel , I too am on a fixed income and those Coverages I depend on because without them it would take money out of my pocket which I don’t have . So a big Yes it matters and am alil worried it will affect me in some what of a way .

I understand what u are saying Asia . When i was fully advocating we would collect people unused meds so they could be shipped to africa where they needed. In the US we had to fight also for right to get those meds . And every state in this union does nt treat their HIV/AIDS patients the same. I cannot tell you the amount of people i meet who have moved to nyc because the HASA benefits are better.

Hell Yes! I’m On A Limited Income and Without Medicaid, Medicare, Ryan White Funds or Any Other Source (s) Of Help There Would Be No Freaking Way I Could Afford My Medication(s). Not only Those Meds but The Meds For My Underlying Health Issues As Well.
