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.

ADAP is administered through the Louisiana Health Access Program (LA HAP), which is the ADAP for the state of Louisiana. ADAP stands for AIDS Drug Assistance Program, a funding source available to every state through the federal Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) that can be used to provide access to medications for uninsured individuals and assistance with cost shares for insured individuals. Assistance is provided through two LA HAP components known as L-DAP and HIP.

  • L-DAP stands for LOUISIANA DRUG ASSISTANCE PROGRAM and covers drug costs for uninsured individuals as well as drug copays, coinsurance, & deductibles for insured individuals.
  • HIP stands for the HEALTH INSURANCE PROGRAM and covers insurance plan premiums as well as non-drug copays, coinsurances, & deductibles for insured individuals.
