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 Texas HIV Medication Program (THMP) is the official AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) for the State of Texas.

Eligibility Criteria: 

To be enrolled in the THMP, you must:

  1. be diagnosed as HIV-positive
  2. be a Texas State resident
  3. meet certain income guidelines (200% of the federal poverty level)
  4. be otherwise uninsured or underinsured for prescription drug coverage (this information must be verifiable)
Application Instructions: 

You may download a copy of the application and ask your local community based organization for help in applying for THMP. You can call 2-1-1 to get information on local agencies in your area. You may also call THMP at 1-800-255-1090 and we will mail you the application.

We recommend that you ask your clinic or HIV service agency to help you complete your THMP application. They can help you complete the application or check over your application before you send it in to make sure it is complete. We can only process complete applications.

In addition to the pages of the application that you complete, your physician must fill out the Medical Certification Form (MCF) included in the application packet to verify your HIV status and current prescriptions. We will need documents that show your income and residency, so please collect check stubs, benefit letters, utility bills, and other documents to prepare to apply.
