AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) is a state-administrated program authorized under Part B of Ryan White Program that provides HIV/AIDS medication to low-income individuals with HIV/AIDS disease who have limited or no coverage from private insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare.
ADAP has instituted a waiting list on June 1, 2010. As of July 1, 2011 Florida has 3,513 individuals on the waiting list.
ADAP provides an HIV/AIDS medication to eligible persons that meet the following criteria:

Once you have been determined eligible for ADAP you will need to set an appointment up with your local ADAP office to be placed on the wait list.
What is needed for ADAP wait list enrollment?
- The Patient Care Core Eligibility Letter

Once you are placed on the ADAP wait list you may be eligible to receive medications through a Patient Assistance Program (PAP).
There are over 180 Patient Assistance Programs offered by pharmaceutical companies that provide free or low-cost drugs for individuals who can not afford to pay for them. Each program has specific Eligibility criteria and coverage. A case manager can assist you with the application process.
