The lifetime cost of treating a person with HIV.
Objective.-To estimate the cost (total charges for services) of medical care for persons with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from the time of infection until death.
Design and Setting.-Data from the AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) Cost and Service Utilization Survey were used.
Patients.-Data from interviews conducted during the spring and early summer of 1992 with 1164 respondents with HIV were analyzed.
The respondents were recruited at 26 sites (hospitals, clinics, and physicians' offices) in 10 cities.
Billing data from a survey of providers also were used.
Outcome Measures.-Estimates of the mean occupancy time in each of four disease stages were obtained from the San Francisco Men's Health Study.
