HIV meds are really expensive- especially when you are taking lots of different meds every day!

If you have health insurance you often just have to pay a small cost at the drug store every time you get your meds. Most provinces will help you pay for meds if you don't have insurance. Make sure your doctor knows about your financial situation before he or she prescribes meds for you.

If you're taking HIV meds and are having problems paying for them, an HIV/AIDS organization might be able to help you. Getting Help section for more information]
