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 Alaskan AIDS Assistance Association is Alaska's Ryan White Part B provider.

Eligibility Criteria

In the State of Alaska, to be eligible for ADAP enrollment, an individual must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a positive HIV/AIDS diagnosis
  • Be a resident of Alaska
    • Residing in Alaska for a minimum of 30 days
    • Willing to sign an "intent to Stay" letter
  • Income eligibility
    • Income less than or equal to 400% of the Federal Poverty Level of Alaska for the applicable family size
    • Non-income assets that fall within the level allowed for Medicaid eligibility
  • Be prescribed a medication on the ADAP formulary by an Alaska physician
  • Be an active client of one of the State-funded HIV Care Consortium lead agencies. Currently, these agencies include the Alaskan AIDS Assistance Association (Four A's) and the Interior AIDS Association (IAA).

The ADAP is required by federal law to be the "payer of last resort." The ADAP may not provide to an individual who is eligible for Medicaid or other Public Assistance, or who has private insurance or Veterans Administration benefits, any benefits that could be covered by the non-ADAP payer.

An individual enrolled in the ADAP must provide the Four A's ADAP administrator the information and documentation necessary to determine financial eligibility for the ADAP on an annual basis in order to remain enrolled (annual recertification). The Four A's may request updated documentation of financial eligibility at any time there is indication that information currently on file has changed.

Application Instructions

An individual may self-refer to the ADAP (and become a client) at the Four A's or be referred to the ADAP by another agency. ADAP eligibility must be determined by a representative of the contract administrative agency (the Four A's). To be considered, each applicant must complete:

  • An "ADAP Intake" form
  • A Four A's (as administrative entity) "Release of Information" form
  • Income verification for 3 recent months or the current tax return

All applications are reviewed and eligibility is determined by the Four A's ADAP administrator.
