how can i buy medicines in USA or how can i use free medicines in USA?

I just knew I'm HIV+ last month in USA.

I visit USA very often to visit my relations and my friends and sometimes visit USA as a tour leader. I was born in China where Gay and AIDS are horribly discriminated and also medicines in China is not very good.

People in China consider AIDS=GAY ONLY. I feel quite nervous visiting hospitals for other diseases in future because doctors might refuse to treat you. I try to stay "HIV-" in China in order to go to normal hospitals for normal diseases.

Sorry, AIDS is a normal disease for people who understand AIDS but not in China, sorry

I want to buy medicines in USA but find it very expensive and luckily I found Bangkok has some medicines more affordable for me

Also is it possible for me to buy insurances in USA so I can get cheaper medicines, thank you once again

Wish to get some advice from you. Thank you a lot.

  • red pill? or blue pill?
Hello welcome.

I have never known anyone to pay retail price for HIV medicine in North America or Europe.

There are some people here who buy HIV drugs in Bangkok. Its seems like a reliable source of good medicine and prices are reasonable. And if you search in the forums you can find threads. Or eventually someone will say something in this thread.

I don't know if a foreigner can but a US based health plan if he doesn't actually live in the USA.

You would also need a prescribing and treating doctor based in the USA.

The USA is hardly the eldorado of generous and easy going health coverage.
