Enrollment Process

A single application form can be used to enroll in ADAP, ADAP Plus, the HIV Home Care Program and PrEP-AP. An additional application is required for APIC. Applicants apply to the program, providing proof of residency and income. A Medical Application signed by a licensed medical professional is required, verifying HIV status. A treatment plan by a physician must also be submitted for Home Care applicants. Upon determination of eligibility, an Enrollment Card is issued which may be used to receive care from an enrolled provider. The programs provide an automated eligibility verification system to allow providers to confirm participant eligibility status.
