ADAP in New Jersey
« on: August 01, 2015, 02:19:21 PM »
I read from a google search that NJ has discontinued  ADAP. Does anyone know if this is true? 

The article is dated back to 2010 so maybe it is back?

ADAP is part of the federal Ryan White Care Act and is a part of every state's Ryan White program. It was never discontinued anywhere; however back in 2010 many of the states had "waiting lists". (heck, this was the second time around with waiting lists because the lists has been used back in 2006 too) This meant while there were people who were medically eligible (ie those people with <350 tcells who should be on meds) and financially eligible (ie people who were poor), some states didn't have enough money to supply all those meds. Those states usually didn't have enough money because the states didn't contribute enough; because they just had too many clients (florida ADAP went totally broke for about 3 more and dropped every ADAP client!); and because the feds didn't contribute enough to care for all the people who were becoming positive and needed assistant. sadly though while a SC pharmacy helped florida clients through their crisis, 3 people died in SC and 1 in KY while on the waiting lists in those states.

Right now there are no waiting lists anywhere in america (wooHoo!) and the NJ ADAP program is in operation.

I called them and they are sending me the card. Not sure why I could not do it over the internet. This will help out a lot. Thanks again!
