Positive Healthcare Petition

Positive Health is running an online petition. Charlie Crist and the Florida legislature wish to make HIV treatment privatized. Positive Health wants to stop this.

In a move that threatens the continuity--and quality--of care for thousands of Floridians living with HIV/AIDS, Governor Charlie Crist’s 'Agency for Health Care Administration' (ACHA) is making drastic changes to a disease management (DM) initiative intended to improve the heath outcomes of Florida's HIV/AIDS Medicaid patients while reducing costs to the state. After eight years of successfully serving more than 8,000 patients in all 67 counties in Florida with AIDS Healthcare Foundation's 'Positive Healthcare-Florida' disease management program, Florida has announced it will shift disease management for this vulnerable, often hard to reach population to a private, for-profit vendor who will have to recreate a replacement HIV/AIDS DM program virtually from scratch with greatly reduced nursing staffing ratios.

Sign the petition.

Guys, this is run by a private company that lost the contract to another private company. Big AHCA deal. Get all the facts, you have had the wool pulled over your eyes by a website.
