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: 
  1. Medical: HIV-infection or at risk of acquiring HIV infection consistent with the guidelines for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis.
  2. Residency: New York State (U.S. citizenship is not required.)
  3. Financial: Financial eligibility is based on 500% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). FPL varies based on household size and is updated annually. Financial eligibility is calculated on the gross income available to the household, excluding Medicare and Social Security withholding and the cost of health care coverage paid by the applicant.
Application Instructions: 

A single application form can be used to enroll in ADAP, ADAP Plus, the HIV Home Care Program and PrEP-AP. An additional application is required for APIC. Applicants apply to the program, providing proof of residency and income. A Medical Application signed by a licensed medical professional is required, verifying HIV status.

When you are approved, you will get an Eligibility Card and instructions on how to use it. You must present this card and prescription at a participating pharmacy to receive covered medications at no charge. Show your card to participating health care providers to receive covered medical services at no charge. If you need them, you will receive home care services from an enrolled home health care agency at no charge ($30,000 maximum life-time benefit).
