AIDS Drug Assistance Program Treatments (ADAP/SPBP/ADDP)

HRSA Service Definition

The AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) is a state-administered program authorized under Part B of the RWHAP to provide FDA-approved medications to low-income clients with HIV disease who have no coverage or limited health care coverage. ADAPs may also use program funds to purchase health insurance for eligible clients and for services that enhance access to, adherence to, and monitoring of antiretroviral therapy. RWHAP ADAP recipients must conduct a cost effectiveness analysis to ensure that purchasing health insurance is cost effective compared to the cost of medications in the aggregate.

Eligible ADAP clients must be living with HIV and meet income and other eligibility criteria as established by the state.
