yeah, it is crazy, considering the full retail price of the medications. You would think it would be an ongoing thing...

Those who only talk about it are usually passed up by those who are quiet & actually doing it. Life's a climb but the view is great.

Only the copay for 12 months total? That's insane!!! Then people get symptomatic, have to spend time in the hospital, it ends up costing the insurance company more!

Thanks for the link... very disturbing news. Those with insurance, some companies offer to pay the co-pay for up to 12-months

This article talks about the need to increase testing, counseling, getting people on medications for HIV/AIDS.

What I found to be surprising - and disappointing - was that they didn't mention our lack of national medical insurance. Or how many people don't have insurance and simply can't afford their meds.
