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.

Eligibility Criteria

In the State of Arkansas, to be eligible for ADAP enrollment, an individual must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a positive HIV/AIDS diagnosis;
  • Be a resident of Arkansas;
  • Proof of HIV positive status
    • HIV Rapid test result, or
    • HIV Confirmatory test result if available
  • Be under 500% of the federal poverty level (FPL).

In order to enroll into the Arkansas AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP), individuals must fulfill all ADAP eligibility criteria. The client is responsible for providing proof of eligibility for ADAP to local ADAP coordinators or case managers at ADAP enrollment sites.
