WHAT IS ADAP?
ADAP stands for AIDS Drug Assistance Programs which is a funding source available through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) that can be used to provide access to medications for uninsured individuals and assistance with cost shares for insured individuals. Louisiana receives ADAP funds from HRSA and still provides medication and insurance services with these funds.
WHAT IS LA HAP (pronounced "lah-hap")?
LA HAP stands for Louisiana Health Access Program and is the program funded by the ADAP dollars that Louisiana receives from HRSA. By applying to LA HAP, members may be eligible for assistance with drug and insurance cost. Assistance is provided through two LA HAP programs know as LDAP and HIP.
• LDAP stands for LOUISIANA DRUG ASSISTANCE PROGRAM and covers drug costs for uninsured individuals as well as drug copays, coinsurances, & deductibles for insured individuals.
• HIP stands for the HEALTH INSURANCE PROGRAM and covers insurance plan premiums as well as non-drug copays, coinsurances, & deductibles for insured individuals.
A SINGLE APPLICATION is used to apply for all services.
