Topic: ADAP: AIDS Drug Assistance Program
The Ryan White Part B AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) provides HIV/AIDS medications to those who lack insurance and resources. Each State and Territory operates an ADAP program and is responsible for managing the purchase and distribution of medications. Each ADAP determines the medications to offer on their formulary (list of covered drugs), although all formularies must meet a baseline standard, which is to cover all core classes of antiretroviral therapies. Clinical and income eligibility varies across States/Territories as each ADAP sets its own criteria.
