Ryan White Part B/ADAP Eligibility Forms and Information
An AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) is a State/Territory-administered program authorized under Part B of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) that provides FDA-approved medications to low-income individuals with HIV disease who have limited or no coverage from private insurance, Medi-caid, or Medicare. ADAP offers services such as: Health Insurance Assistance Services, Direct Medication Assistance Services, and Tax Preparation Services.
Health Insurance to Provide Medications (HIP-Rx) is the provision of financial assistance for eligible individuals living with HIV to maintain continuity of health insurance or to receive medical and prescription benefits under a health insurance plan. This includes:
If an applicant is not eligible for a health insurance plan (a private individual plan, a Marketplace plan, an employer plan, or a COBRA plan) or public health insurance option (Medicare, Medicaid, VA, HIS, etc.) then ADAP will cover the full cost of any medication that is on the Nevada ADAP Formulary. Funding allocated to Nevada ADAP provides an approved formulary of medications to people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWH) for the treatment of HIV disease or the prevention of opportunistic infections.The HIV/AIDS Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) reviews new and existing medications to be included or deleted from the ADAP formulary. Consumers are welcome to submit a request for the addition of a specific medication or medications, and the recommendation will be discussed at the following MAC meeting. Recommended medications must be those which improve PLWH overall health. Please see here to submit your request.
Nevada currently has universal eligibility for the enrollment of services meaning there is only one enrollment process for all services. Before you enroll in the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP), you must first meet the requirements for the Nevada Ryan White Services. Once eligible for Ryan White Services, your enrollment coordinator can refer you to ADAP services. Once this referral is received, applications are processed within 14 business days. If you have less than seven days of medication, you may receive an emergency referral that is processed within 48 hours.
Child care services are the provision of care for the children of clients who are HIV-positive while the clients attend medical or other appointments or Ryan White Program-related meetings, groups, or training.
(NOTE: This does not include child care while a client is at work.)
