Part B - AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP)

The Part B AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) of HRSA's Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) provides HIV/AIDS medications and access to insurance coverage to those who lack insurance and resources. Each State and Territory operates an ADAP program and is responsible for managing the purchase and distribution of medications. Each ADAP determines the medications to offer on their formulary (list of covered drugs). However, all formularies must meet a baseline standard, which is to cover all core classes of antiretroviral therapies. Clinical and income eligibility requirements vary across States/Territories as each ADAP sets its own criteria. HRSA project officers and technical assistance and training partners provide support to RWHAP recipients.
