ADAP Watch List Update April 2013
« on: April 16, 2013, 12:29:24 PM »
Lest we forget, there are still people on ADAP waiting lists right now. As you can read below in the recent email from Julie M. Scofield, the Executive Director of National Alliance of State & Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD), the waiting lists could begin to grow as we move into the summer months.

ADAPs with Waiting Lists as of April 11, 2013
31 individuals in 3 states

South Dakota17-30

ADAP April 11th Watch List

Congress finalized a Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the government for the remainder of FY2013 in March. The CR does NOT include the $35 million in emergency relief funds (ERFs) announced by President Obama on World AIDS Day (December 1, 2011) and awarded to 15 states and territories in August 2012.  ... In addition, sequestration took effect on March 1, 2013.  Details on how the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) will implement the additional 5.2% sequestration cuts as well as any other cuts are expected in the next few weeks. 

Based on recent developments at the federal level, NASTAD believes that waiting lists will soon begin to increase as states examine and review their FY2013 funding levels. NASTAD estimates that due to the loss of the $35 million ERF funds 7,920 current ADAP clients could lose access to life-saving medications. ...

Finally, additional changes to the Ryan White Part B/ADAP formula distribution will take effect for FY2013.  These will also likely result in funding shifts for state ADAPs.  Only name-based HIV cases reported to CDC will be used in the formula calculations and the hold harmless provision will also decrease to 92.5% of statesí FY2012 award. Ongoing shifts in the proportion of the nationís living HIV/AIDS cases will occur as well.

The Presidentís FY2014 budget proposal was released on April 10, 2013.  The proposal includes an increase of $20 million from FY2012 for a total of $2.4 billion for Ryan White Programs.  The proposal includes an increase of $10 million for ADAP, $10 million for Ryan White Part C above FY2012 funding levels and the $35 million in Presidentís World AIDS Day 2011 ADAP emergency relief funding (ERF).
