no. what happens is that a state simply chooses to not fund or under fund their state ADAP budget ... and the money only goes so far. There's no political penalty for not funding ADAP; but there is a physical and emotional penalty as HIV spreads and people get sick without meds or worry how their next pill will be paid for.

Miss Philicia:
And as a contrast for Theyer's information, Pennsylvania raised from 337% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines (FPIG) to 500% to qualify for ADAP as of last January, and without any resource limit. An individual can have income up to $57,450.00 (one-person household) when applying for the benefit. That's actually higher than New York (435%) now, plus they have a liquid asset limit of $25,000.
