ADAP Update 9/17/10 - Better News On A Bad Situation

(1/8) > >>

leatherman:
There's some better news with this latest ADAP update. As a result of ADAP Emergency Funding, Hawaii, Idaho, South Dakota, and Utah have eliminated their waiting lists. Iowa seemed to have cleared their list before capping enrollment. Kentucky's list is down by 38 while NC removed 172 from their list and SC cleared 187 from their list.

Sadly though Flordia's list continued to rise by another large amount, while Georgia, Louisiana and Ohio continued to add people to their respective waiting lists.

ADAPs with Waiting Lists
3,214 individuals in 9 states*, as of September 16, 2010
(changes from September 2, 2010 noted in parens (-344))

Florida: 1,712 individuals (+206)
Georgia: 533 individuals (+25)
Hawaii: 0 individuals* (-12)
Iowa: 0 individuals (program capped on September 15, 2010) (-125)
Kentucky: 227 individuals (-38)
Louisiana: 394 individuals** (+55)
Montana: 10 individuals (0)
North Carolina:  30 individuals (-172)
Ohio: 205 individuals (+49)
South Carolina: 103 individuals (-187)
South Dakota: 0 individuals* ( -25)
Utah: 0 individuals* (-145)

*As a result of ADAP Emergency Funding, Hawaii, Idaho, South Dakota, and Utah have eliminated their waiting lists.
**Louisiana has a capped enrollment on their program.  This number is a representation of their current unmet need.

according to the watch list document, AZ has already reduced their formulary and is "considering" adding a wait list as a form of cost-containment before the end of the fiscal year on March 31, 2011 (but AZ doesn't currently have a list started).

leatherman:
Although the rallies for ADAP funding in SC back in Mar and May (SC ADAP Funding Cut Protest Rally) helped stopped the legislature from defunding the entire ADAP budget, unfortunately, the State's decision to inadequately fund ADAP may have serious repercussions and result in lessened federal funding in the future.
