If most people become infected with an STD then will they need health insurance to treat the disease?

by Rachel on November 10, 2010

Are most STD treatments within the reach of people who cannot afford health insurance?

If an STD, infected, person, is treated then will his life expectancy be decreased?

Magic Johnson has been infected with HIV for about 18years. Is that a result of his wealth?

You need to stop using STD and HIV as if they were the same thing.

That being said, if you have HIV and are treated for that, your life expectancy will probably be decreased.

Several STD’s can be cured within 1 week and will never cause any long term problems or decrease your life expectancy.

Other STD’s like Herpes can continue to cause minor problems for you for the rest of your life.

no matter what disease you have you need health insurance to get help for it or have money to pay for it which depending on which disease it is. yes majic johnson takes a lot of medicine everyday and he does have the money to pay for it but that is not definetly the reason that he has lived for so long.

IT WILL BE BEST TO HAVE INSURANCE FOR BETTER SACKS, BUT IF NOT THERE ARE FREE CLINICS OUT THERE.
