The ADAP insurance assistance program is funded by the Florida Department of Health and is a component of the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP). It is designed to assist eligible clients with costs associated with insurance premiums. ADAP clients will have government sponsored health insurance/Health Insurance Marketplace plans that includes prescription coverage. The insurance plans for this new program were analyzed by the Florida Department of Health for its comprehensive coverage that includes a drug formulary that is comparable to drugs that are on the ADAP Program formulary.
Clients who were selected to apply for health insurance through the Government sponsored Marketplace plans, enrolled through the assistance of a Navigator to ensure they selected one of the four comprehensive health insurance plans selected by the Florida Department of Health. Clients, who meet eligibility requirements and have enrolled in one of the designated plans, will receive health insurance cards and the same prescription coverage that they had previously while in ADAP. BRHPC pays for the clients’ monthly premium and ensures that the insurance carrier is paid promptly.
Clients who are currently in the AICP also receive assistance for COBRA and Employer Sponsored health insurance premiums. Payments for both state-wide programs are initiated by the Florida Department of Health and processed by Broward Regional.
