I totally agree, we need a national health care system.

It's ridiculous that one of the richest nations has so many people without health care. Alot of those that do have health care can't afford their copays or deductables. I"ve been learning alot about the health care insurance industry since I've been in school and let me tell you, They are scandilous!!! They are one of the richest industries in the world and yet they try every trick in the book to get out of paying for services rendered. They have no problem taking hugh prememiums every month though.

No one who is ill should have to fear death just because they don't have health insurance. It's difficult enough to adjust to an illness without the added stress of how will I pay for all of the treatments, medications?

What your friend is doing is great! Doctors and Insurance companies that work in that manner only add to the wrongful stigma of HIVand AIDS paitients. I have also seen where they have given "using" alcoholics liver translplants... Unfortunately our medical system isn't based on healing, most of its all about the mighty $$$...

I'd like to see a National Health Care System where everyone is covered. Ours is such an injust system as it is.

wow-great sites--My friend Tony works in organ transplant profession-and was appalled last year that HIV positive patients were not receiving or eligible for organ transplants-so he did a research paper on it, and begun an advocay movement in LA for changing the policies etc.  He has been traveling giving presentations as well on this topic.  Hopefuly things will change up faster- a lot of insurance co hesitant, strict ploicies, as well as Dr's desiring to give organs to people who are not positive even when not living healthy lifestyles (i.e. active alcoholics..etc)...
