D.C. expands access to anti-HIV drugs

Under a new federal waiver permitting Medicaid coverage to be extended to applicants otherwise ineligible for the health care program, the District of Columbia will expand access to anti-HIV medications through a new program for low-income HIV-positive city residents, The Washington Post reports. A network of 24 pharmacies will provide antiretroviral medications to single adults earning up to 100% of the federal poverty level. District health officials expect to sign up 267 people this year and a total of 620 people over the next five years for the program.
