medicines covered by Ryan White
« on: October 16, 2007, 11:31:17 PM »
I have tried to find a list of meds covered under Ryan White but no luck so far.  Its rather frustrating when the doctor prescribes a medicine and then I find out that I cant have it because its not covered or only one of the meds is covered.  This week he prescribed two meds to try and help with my problems with my legs.

One to help clear the cholesterol in my blood vessels in my legs and one to open up the veins to increase the blood flow.  The Lipitor was covered but the other was not.  The daily baby aspirin I can afford on my limited resources.  Does anyone know where I can get some kind of idea about covered medicines?

Formularies are done by state for ADAP, not on a federal level.  Don't you have some sort of correspondence or a file at home with some sort of State Dept. of Health where you live to call?  I would think they might have already sent you a list at the time you first signed up.  Maybe it's laying around in your desk drawer.

Hey Pilot,

Philly is right, each state has its own formulary. I have one for my state, but that wouldn't do you a bit of good.

I would check with your ASO. One should be availaable there.
