In order to address the challenges currently faced by ADAPs, NASTAD has embarked on a project to expand access to care and treatment for individuals living with HIV/AIDS by strengthening ADAPs and providing opportunities for individuals to access care beyond ADAP in a more streamlined approach. NASTAD began this process by analyzing three current options for increased access to care for under and uninsured individuals living with HIV – ADAP, pharmaceutical patient assistance programs (PAPs) and Welvista. Following this analysis, NASTAD has worked to develop a standardized PAP enrollment process and application, common eligibility, and coordinated medication fulfillment. This effort, in conjunction with industry and federal partners, will bring HIV/AIDS care and treatment for the under and uninsured to a new era.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will become familiar with the process by which ADAPs and/or PAPs provide access to treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS.
  • Participants will learn about the progress towards created a standardized process and application for enrollment into PAPs, including outcomes from a May 2012 Consultation conducted in collaboration with the Department of Health and Human Services, federal, pharmacuetical, and community partners.
  • Participants will learn how to expand access to care for people living with HIV/AIDS and better address the current unmet treatment needs of people living with HIV/AIDS.
