Miami Drug Rehab applauds Florida's new initiative to make HIV/AIDS treatment fair for those living with the disease.
In direct response to the notice issued by Florida's Office of Insurance Regulation, a Miami Drug Rehab associate comments, "The new measures set forth by Florida's office of Insurance is spot-on. Even though this issue is important to many, our clients in particular will benefit from amendments made to unfair insurance policies. Many people contract HIV before they seek help for their addictions. This of course later compounds recovery, because learning to live with this life long disease is difficult, and can cause many to relapse, from the sheer weight of it.
