According to The AIDS Institute, the Obama administration is limiting how much AIDS Drug Assistance Program money states can receive from new recently approved federal funding to $3 million.
With possible eligibility cuts, funding shortages, Florida’s AIDS Drug Assistance Program remains in crisis (Updated)
The Florida Department of Health on Monday will hold the first of several public debates to decide whether to reduce eligibility to Florida’s AIDS Drug Assistance Program (aka ADAP) from 400 percent of the federal poverty level to 200 percent.
In other words: A person who earns $30,000 a year would not qualify for ADAP. HIV/AIDS drugs cost between $10,000 and $20,000 a year.
