BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

There is a new twist in the legal battle between HIV/AIDS patients and three health insurance companies, including Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana.

The companies have assured a federal judge they won't immediately stop accepting premium payments from a federal program that helps patients cover costs.

The judge has set a hearing on March 10 to decide whether to issue a long-term order that would prevent the companies from dropping their coverage.
