Eligibility Criteria: 
  • You must be a Colorado resident.
  • You must have proof of HIV-positive diagnosis verifiable at CDPHE or from a doctor or testing facility.

    • If you're eligible for Medicaid, you must verify that you have applied for that program.
    • You may receive temporary access to our uninsured program while this application is pending.

    • You'll receive assistance in paying the costs of enrolling in this insurance.
  • If you're eligible for Medicare, you'll also need to join Colorado ADAP’s Bridging the Gap Colorado plan for help with the costs of Medicare prescription drug premiums and related co-payments.
  • If you have Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid program), the Supplemental Wrap-Around Program (SWAP) can help cover the copays on your ADAP formulary medications.
  • If you can't access any other insurance, you'll be enrolled in the HIV Medication Assistance Program (HMAP).
  • If your household income is between four and five times the Federal Poverty Level, the maximum amount you can earn is in the column on the right in the table below, and you'll receive assistance only with medication costs.
