This is a 38 percent decrease from the 6,595 individuals on the November 2011 ADAP Watch. Eighteen ADAPs, including 10 with current waiting lists, have instituted additional cost-containment measures since April 1, 2009 (reported as of February 1, 2012). In addition, six ADAPs, including one with current waiting lists, reported they are considering implementing new or additional cost-containment measures by the end of ADAP's current fiscal year (March 31, 2012).

An ADAP waiting list using a medical criteria model is structured based on a hierarchical criteria typically established by the state based on recommendations from its ADAP Advisory Committee. Of the 12 states with ADAP waiting lists, five ADAPs utilize a medical criteria model for prioritizing clients to join the active client roll.
