AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) and ADAP Assist– The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) is responsible for the administration of ADAP for the state of Arizona. ADAP provides access to medications used to treat HIV and prevent the onset of related opportunistic infections to low-income individuals with HIV disease who have limited or no coverage from private insurance or Medicaid.
ADAP Assist is co-pay assistance for ADAP clients who have private insurance, Medicare, or pre-existing condition insurance plan Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP). When we receive an ADAP application for a client who is insured or eligible for insurance, we ask for premium, formulary and co-pay information. ADAP needs this information to determine whether the coverage is adequate and affordable. Adequate means the insurance will cover the antiretroviral (ARV) drug therapy. Affordability is determined by adding the yearly premium and co-pays and comparing the total to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) affordability guidelines (see below). If the client’s premium and co-pays for the year are more than 5 or 7% of their income, then the insurance is deemed unaffordable and the client is enrolled in ADAP Assist. If premium and co-pays are affordable, then the client will not be eligible for ADAP Assist.
