AIDS DISCRIMINATION IN LOUISIANA

To be delivered to BLUE CROSS/BLUE SHEILD OF LOUISIANA, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

Hundreds of people with HIV/AIDS in Louisiana are in danger of being thrown out of the insurance plan. The state's largest carrier is rejecting checks from a federal program designed to help these patients pay for AIDS drugs and insurance premiums, and has begun notifying customers that their enrollment in its Obamacare plans will be discontinued. The carrier says it no longer will accept third-party payments, such as those under the 1990 Ryan White Act, which many people with HIV/AIDS use to pay their premiums.

There are currently 1,350 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

I, Robert Darrow, am living with AIDS and my friends are being singled out for discrimination in the name of corporate profit by our state's largest insurance company. Please help shine light on this discrimination. This injustice must stop!
