For clients on ADAP waiting lists who are currently on or in need of medications, 11 ADAP waiting list states can confirm that ADAP waiting list clients are receiving medications through either pharmaceutical company patient assistance programs (PAPs), Welvista, or other mechanisms available within the state.

  • Escalating drug costs (18 ADAPs)
  • Budget cuts to state Medicaid or other state programs (12 ADAPs)
