Start medical care and HIV treatment as soon as you find out you have HIV. Staying in medical care can keep you healthy and help protect others.
If you have health insurance, your insurer is required to cover some medicines used to treat HIV.
If you don’t have health insurance, or you can’t afford your copay or co-insurance amount, you may be able to get help through Medicaid, Medicare, the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, and community health centers. Visit www.cdc.gov/hivtreatmentworks to learn more.
