HIV positive patients should not be denied insurance cover for other diseases, Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) chief J Hari Narayan said on Thursday. “Insurance cover will not be given for HIV but for other ailments, which are not directly related to that disease,” Narayan said. He urged insurance companies to reconsider the reasons for excluding HIV+ from getting cover.
