Information for Clients
AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP)
What Is ADAP?
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 living with HIV who have limited or no insurance coverage.
What Is ADAP Assist?
ADAP Assist is co-pay assistance for ADAP clients who have:
- Private insurance
- Employer based insurance, or
- Insurance through the Federally Facilitated Marketplace (FFM)
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, meaning the insurance will cover the antiretroviral (ARV) drug therapy. Clients can only enroll in the FFM if they are not enrolled in Medicare or their private or employer based insurance has been deemed inadequate and/or unaffordable.
