HIV/AIDS Bureau Program Letters on PrEP and ADAP as TrOOP

The HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau recently issued two new program letters for Ryan White Program Grantees.

Beginning January 1, 2011 AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs) copayments, premium assistance, deductibles, and co-insurance paid by ADAP will count towards True Out-of-Pocket (TrOOP) expenses for ADAP-eligible/Medicare Part D-eligible clients. Download the letter.

A recent NIH study found that use of a pill with the two antiretroviral drugs can help prevent HIV infection (pre-exposure prophylaxis or PrEP). Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program funds cannot pay for PrEP as the person using PrEP is not HIV infected and therefore not eligible for Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program-funded medication. However, grantees are encouraged to share information on the study results with their medical providers so they are aware of the results and limitations of the study. Download the letter.
