The purpose of this study was to measure unmet needs and changes in insurance status for persons with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
Thirty-six percent of the study's Boston-area respondents (n=305) had a change in insurance coverage between AIDS diagnosis and interview.
Medicaid coverage increased from 14% to 41%. Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia proophylaxis was nearly universal.
Only 5% did not receive zidovudine, and intravenous drug users were at higher risk.
