Act TODAY to help people with HIV get health care in Massachusetts
Monday, May 18, 2015
We urgently need calls today to pass a crucial budget amendment that will enable people with HIV in Massachusetts to get health care.
Senator Mark Montigny has offered an Amendment to the Senate Budget that would ensure treatment for HIV-associated lipodystrophy, a debilitating side-effect of some HIV medications that causes disfiguring body shape changes. Treatment is currently denied by the insurance industry.
Please call your State Senator today and ask him or her to support Budget Amendment 846 sponsored by Senator Montigny that would help people with HIV-associated lipodystrophy get medical treatment.
The Senate will begin debate on budget amendments today or tomorrow.
