Health insurers may be finding new ways to discriminate

In a discrimination complaint filed with the Department of Health and Human Services' civil rights division last year, two patient advocacy groups alleged that four Florida insurers selling plans on ACA exchanges were requiring HIV patients to pay up to 50 percent of the cost of HIV medications, even for generic versions, which should in theory be cheaper. They also asked federal regulators to investigate whether this practice was happening more broadly across the country.
