The California Department of Public Health has issued instructions regarding the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) to minimize exposure to COVID-19. For clients with expiring eligibility or expired eligibility back to March 1, ADAP is extending eligibility for 90 days to June 30, 2020.
New or lapsed clients can enroll over the phone. New or lapsed clients will be required to provide documentation of eligibility. Workers can email the client so the client can respond with enrollment and supporting documentation.
ADAP will now have early medication refills and has extended the dispense quantity to 90-day fills. (Management Memorandum 20-06, March 16, 2020.)
