You must prove that you live in the District of Columbia. Presentation and verification of one of the following documents may be used to confirm residency:
- A valid driver's license or government issued non-driver's identification
- A voter's registration card
- A lease and/or mortgage agreement
- A current utility bill
- A document from another government agency addressed to the applicant
Individuals who declare themselves homeless must submit a statement on letterhead, from an official at a District of Columbia shelter, verifying residency. A person living with others, who has no bills posted in his/her name, can have the occupant complete an affidavit attesting to the applicant's residency. This information should be accompanied by the occupant's utility bill and or phone bill for verification of residency.
Your physician is required to complete and sign DC ADAP'S medical eligibility form verifying your HIV/AIDS status. ALL INFORMATION IS CONFIDENTIAL.
Insurance coverage does not disqualify you from receiving ADAP benefits. If you have used all of your insurance benefits for the year (i.e. met your insurance cap for prescription drugs), you may be eligible for DC ADAP. If you have not met your cap, DC ADAP can help pay for deductible and co-payment costs for HIV-related prescription drugs. You may also be able to get help with paying your monthly premium.
