North Carolina

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: 

To be eligible for ADAP, individuals must:

  • be HIV positive,
  • reside in North Carolina,
  • have a gross family income that is equal to or less than 300 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (see Appendix F of Program Manual).
  • ADAP is not available for individuals with private health insurance, employer sponsored health insurance, or Medicaid.
Application Instructions: 

All ADAP applications are processed by Purchase of Medical Care Services (POMCS). POMCS determines eligibility and authorizes services for programs administered through the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Public Health. Applications must be submitted by an Interviewer, not the applicant. The Interviewer may be the applicant’s HIV case manager, social worker, clinician, or anyone else working in an official capacity on the applicant’s behalf. An individual who wants to apply for ADAP should contact their clinician, their HIV case manager, one of NC’s HIV Regional Networks, a local health department, an AIDS Service Organization or the ADAP Office. 

Contact the ADAP Client Helpline (1-877-466-2232 in-state or 919-733-9161 out-of-state) for more information. Also, see ADAP Program Manual
