Prescription Assistance Programs (PAPs) are offered by many drug manufacturers to help uninsured and lower-income people afford the medicine they need. Each PAP determines a patient's eligibility for assistance based on their individual program requirements, which can vary widely.
Common Application for HIV Patient Assistance Programs
On September 12, 2012 a common application form for PAPs for HIV/AIDS drugs was adopted. It allows uninsured individuals living with HIV to use one application to apply to multiple pharmaceutical companies for assistance programs that together provide an entire course of antiretroviral therapy.
Preseciption Assistance Programs for other Conditions
Medications for other conditions that were formerly available through the Virginia AIDS Drug Assistance Program program (ADAP) are now available through PAPs but require use of each appropriate pharmaceutical company's application form. See a list of these medications with their manufacturers at PAPs: Medications Other than HIV Antiretrovirals.
