Directory of AIDS Drug Assistance Programs


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: 

There are five qualifications for the program:

  1. You must be a Colorado resident.
  2. You must have proof of HIV positive diagnosis from a doctor or testing facility.
  3. You must be at or below 400 percent of the Federal Poverty Level, (see below). If your income is between 400 to 500 percent times the Federal Poverty Level, you're eligible for assistance with prescription medications only.
  4. The Ryan White ADAP system must be the payer of last resort. 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. If you are eligible for insurance through your employer, a COBRA policy, or on an individual program, you will need to receive assistance through Colorado ADAP's Health Insurance Assistance Program (HIAP) if you would be able to access medications in an affordable manner through that insurance.
  5. If you are eligible for Medicare, you will also need to join Colorado ADAP's Bridging the Gap, Colorado (BTGC) plan for assistance with the costs of Medicare prescription drug premiums and related co-payments.
  6. If you cannot access any other insurance, you will be enrolled in the HIV Medication Assistance Program, or HMAP.
  7. If you are on Medicaid (only), you must access HIV medications through that program.

Important notice regarding ADAP eligibility and same-sex couples 
Due to legal rulings, we consider any same sex-couple who has been legally married in Colorado or any other state that recognizes same-sex marriage as members of the same household. Therefore, verification of both partners’ income will be necessary for enrollment in any ADAP component group or plan, and federal and state tax documents must be filed as a married couple. 
ADAP recertificaiton 
  • All members of Colorado ADAP must recertify their eligibility for the program every six months.
    • This recertification is due on the last day of your birth month and the last day of the month six months from then.
  • Please submit your recertification documentation on time to avoid delays in getting your medications or the loss of insurance, because the ADAP can't pay for premiums for individuals whose eligibility has expired.
ADAP meetings
  • We host a monthly meeting of the ADAP Review Committee.
    • These meetings are open to the public and are intended to allow input into the policies, practices and formulary of the Colorado ADAP.
  • To learn the date, location or organizational structure of the ADAP Review Committee, call 303-692-2783.
