AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP)

The Kansas AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) is a statewide program that provides eligible clients medications for the treatment of HIV/AIDS. The Kansas ADAP works collaboratively with the Division of Health Care Finance (DHCF), also referred to as the state's Medicaid Program. Through this partnership, the Kansas Care Program maintains the eligibility of the ADAP while the Medicaid Program oversees the claims processing of the program.

The Kansas ADAP is funded through a variety of sources. Although a majority of funding is received through HRSA, the program also receives funding from the State of Kansas and rebates through pharmaceutical companies. Those clients identified through the Kansas ADAP and the Kansas Medically Needy program (Medicaid) with an unmet spenddown are additionally benefited through these funding sources. Those clients accessing ADAP services and have Medicaid Medically Needy are automatically eligible for spenddown assistance.

Services are available to all eligible clients within the Kansas Ryan White Part B Program. These services provide reimbursement for medications listed on the Kansas ADAP Medication Formulary. This formulary currently includes all FDA- approved medications for the treatment of HIV infection, including medications that are utilized for the prevention and treatment of secondary infections.
