Mississippi

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.

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.

Eligibility Criteria: 
  • Must be HIV positive;
  • Must have a primary home address in Mississippi;
  • Must have household income below 300% of the Federal Poverty Level (as per current guidelines);
  • Must obtain the services available through Medicaid, Medicare, SCHIP, Federal Exchange Marketplace plans, or other payor if covered.
