I have grave concerns about the 6 month lock out period if a premium is submitted late. I am the Administrator and a RN who cares for people with HIV/AIDS. Our patients who are on life saving medications and then get into a lock out period, they will not have access to their there medication. HIV will develop resistance and when they do have access to medication again the old ones will no longer be effective. This makes no sense to me. It is much less expensive to treat HIV than to treat AIDS! These folks who run out of treatment options will require more hospitalizations with days in the ICU with PCP pneumonia when the immune status is destroyed and they can no longer fight off infections. This takes us back to the 80s not forward! Insanity, if you always do what you have always done your going to get the same as you have always gotten!
