ADAP Wait List Update

Save-ADAP

Our agency has been affected by the Government cutbacks thus having to refer clients to the ADAP Program.  That program has a ‘wait list’.  If you didn’t know about ADAP, here’s a breakdown and update where Virginia stands.

The AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) is a national program that was started by the United States government through the Ryan White Act in 1987 to provide free or low cost drugs to people with HIV who have limited financial resources.

Generally, these are people who have an income that is too high for Medicaid, but too low to afford life saving medications and services and without private health insurance.

The PURPOSE AND MISSION of the AIDS Drug Assistance Program is to ENSURE that FINANCIALLY CHALLENGED individuals living with HIV/AIDS HAVE ACCESS TO LIFE-SAVING MEDICATIONS.

Access to Health Care

In America today, it is a struggle for millions of people to afford the health care they need. The threat of rising health insurance premiums and the prospect of losing coverage altogether has become a constant concern for far too many American families.
