Repealing the Affordable Health Care Act means woes for people with HIV - Washington DC HIV and AIDS: "Repealing the act would mean:
* No expansion of Medicaid which would assist people with HIV/AIDS with life-saving healthcare
* No added provisions such as high-risk pools and insurance exchanges. Those who have no coverage or have been previously denied coverage (perhaps because of a pre-existing condition) may be continuously denied and will not be able to comparison shop for private health-insurance plans.
* The Medicare Part D drug benefit coverage gap (otherwise known as the donut hole) stays put. People living with HIV/AIDS will not be able to depend on state AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAP) to help cover the cost of prescription drugs."
