The AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) helps ensure that people living with HIV and AIDS who are uninsured and under-insured have access to medication. Individuals are eligible for ADAP if they:
Are a resident of California
Are HIV infected
Are 18 years of age or older
Have a Federal Adjusted Gross Income (FAGI) that does not exceed $50,000
Have a valid prescription from a licensed California physician and
Lack private insurance that covers the medications, or do not qualify for no-cost Medi-Cal.
If you meet the eligibility requirements, you must apply in person at an authorized ADAP enrollment site. You will be responsible to provide support documentation to verify your eligibility.
Once you complete your enrollment into ADAP, your HIV medications will be accessible through participating ADAP pharmacies. Currently, 185 drugs are available through ADAP, and there are over 4,000 participating pharmacies statewide where you can access these drugs.
