Ohio ADAP Crisis Proposed Regs Worst in U.S.
« on: January 23, 2012, 05:34:34 PM »
The state of Ohio is once again trying to change its ADAP eligibility requirements be limited to those with income below $11,000 and CD4 counts lower than 201.  This is a recipe for disaster:

Wow, I waited 3 years on the waiting list to get approved and am now on the verge of loosing those benefits?  This would virtually knock the majority off the program.

Thanks for posting, I'll make my voice heard.  Not sure why I wasn't aware of these potential changes.

Wolfie, if this happens, you might end up paying for all of your AVRs, and if your income is anything like mine is, you won't be able to afford that each month, and pay your rent/mortgage/car note, food/bills and such  :-[ have you considered moving outta Ohio to another State where is won't happen to you........just a though  :-\

I've always imagined moving back to the Charleston WVA area.  I love that area.

I mean, $10, 899 as an ADAP cut-off fixed @ 100% FPL , and I know you make far more than that, like I do, might not be a very good State to be living-in.......amazing just how some ASSHOLE in your State Govt. can change the way you live and jeopardize your health-care with just a stroke of a pin, I sure wouldn't wanna live in a state that even thinks this way, and I'm glad I don't live in one  :o

 :)  I lived in New Mexico for years and the ADAP/Ryan White care was fairly good.  Our co-pay for HIV meds was $0.  The state would UPS them to our door from the state pharmacy in Santa Fe.  We are now in New York.  The program here is just to go to a pharmacy which works with ADAP, and there are literally hundreds of them in the state or more.  In New Mexico, we also received a Blue Cross Blue Shield card for physician visits and which would pay for 80% of any non-HIV medications.  In New York, it is a GHI/APIC card, called "New York Bridge."  It all works the same.  We get dental here as we did in NM, vision one time per year.
