Would someone please advise where current information can be found about how Medicare D affects ADAP programs?

In addition to JREs suggestion...you might try:

The site breaks down ADAP state-by-state...which is relavant as each state sets their own eligibility, drug formularies, etc.  They vary widely.  Also Part D integration is handled on a state-by-state basis.  And if you have questions, the site will provide the name of your state's ADAP coordinator and the way to contact the person.

There has been considerable confusion as Part D commenced earlier in the year.  I think (or hope) by now...the dust has settled enough so we can seek out the facts where they exist.

Good luck!  I had my share of stress over this earlier  :o
