Aids Drug Assistance Program (ADAP)
The Virginia (VA) AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) provides access to life-saving medications for the treatment of HIV and related illnesses for low-income clients through the provision of medications or through assistance with insurance premiums and medication co-payments. The program is administered by the Virginia Department of Health. ADAP is primarily supported with federal Ryan White Program funds.
Ryan White Program
The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program is a federal program that provides a comprehensive system of care that includes primary medical care and essential support services for people living with HIV who are uninsured or underinsured. The Program works with cities, states, and local community-based organizations and serves as an important source of ongoing access to HIV medication that can enable people living with HIV to live close to normal lifespans. The Ryan White Program is a “payer of last resort” program that exists to provide coverage, care, and treatment, for those who have no other source of coverage or face coverage limits.
Support services provided in the Nexus program expand the options available to newly diagnosed or People Living with HIV (PLWH) giving them the benefit and flexibility of receiving HIV-related care in a medical setting of their choosing – a private infectious disease, primary care or specialist practice.
