“Yesterday’s vote was a remarkable victory in a nation that often struggles to provide care to those who need it most,” said Craig E. Thompson, APLA’s executive director. “It’s also an important step forward for Americans living with HIV and AIDS, who are often priced out of the insurance market, subjected to pre-existing condition clauses and very susceptible to unfair insurance policy cancellations.”

“…it’s a critical validation of the belief that affordable and stable healthcare should be available to all Americans, including the poor and the sick who need it most.” [3/23/10] <http://www.apla.org/news/press_releases/2010/2010_0323_APLA_Applauds_...>
