The Ryan White Part B Care and Services Division also provides assistance for eligible patients to receive life-saving HIV antiretroviral medications through the AIDS Drug Assistance program (ADAP). Enrolled individuals may designate an MSDH health clinic as the pick-up point for their medications and the MSDH State Pharmacy administers the distribution and replenishment of ADAP medications statewide using a system tracking for medications picked up by patients. ADAP clients receive medication compliance counseling at the time of initial pick-up, annually thereafter, and as a form of intervention when pick-up is episodic.
Clients apply for ADAP through local service provider organizations. Case managers can link clients to providers in their area. For additional information, call 601-362-4879.
