motherinneed:
I am never sure where to post my questions so here it goes in this section also
My son is HIV positive, he just lost his job..
HOW does he afford his meds without health care insurance, especially if he cannot get another job?
He will most likely have to leave NY and come back to NJ so I would please like answers to this from NY and NJ people as to the availablity of options???
Please help as I am stressed .

ARMANDO:
CHECK WITH THE DEPT. OF HEALTH IN YOUR AREA.IN MY RAEA IF YOU MAKE LESS THEN 1200.00 A MONTH OR HAVE NO INCOME THEY COMPLETELY PAY FOR ALL YOUR MEDS!!

J.R.E.:
Hello ,

Check out the link below. Scroll down to your state and area, your son will need to find an Aids Service Organizations in his/your area:
