The Affordable Care Act gives over 20 million Americans a chance to have proper healthcare, but the Republican Congress is hell-bent on repealing it—even if they won't have a replacement bill ready for several years. So how is Trumpcare likely to differ from Obamacare when it comes to people with HIV?
For those who are wondering what the next four years might look like, GetTested.com, an at-home sexually transmitted infection testing startup, compiled information on what will be lost to people living with HIV when the ACA is repealed.
GetTested delivers at-home STI kits that can screen for the most common STIs, including HIV, syphilis, and chlamydia. The process takes only ten minutes, and can be mailed back to a CLIA certified and CAP accredited laboratory. After a few days, individuals are notified of their results via email.
How convenient is that?
