National ADAP Advocacy Association Meeting in DC
Joey Wynn of the Florida HIV AIDS Advocacy Network (FHAAN) presented material from the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) Advocacy Association’s meeting in Washington, DC on April 14. The material concerned proposals to expand ADAP‘s capacity to serve 1,500 additional clients at current funding levels. These proposals would move about 5,000 current ADAP clients to the “silver” plans of the health care exchanges of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). It’s less expensive to indirectly purchase health care through insurance than to directly purchase health care. It is these cost savings that will fund the slots for 1,500 additional clients.
