AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP)
2 min read

The AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) provides medications for the treatment of HIV/AIDS at no cost to you. Under certain circumstances, ADAP will give this financial assistance if you have insurance that can cover the expense of your HIV/AIDS treatments, but are having trouble paying out-of-pocket fees, like co-payments. Once you enroll in the program, you will receive an ADAP card with instructions on how to use it. You will present this card and a prescription at a participating pharmacy.

ADAP provides free medications for the treatment of HIV/AIDS and opportunistic infections. The drugs provided through ADAP can help people with HIV/AIDS to live longer and treat the symptoms of HIV infection.
