Fair Pricing Coalition Brokers Rescue of Troubled ADAP
The Fair Pricing Coalition (FPC) announced on February 1 that it has brokered agreements that will allow approximately 6,500 Floridians to continue to receive their HIV medications during a budget crisis in that state. Partners in the agreement include Welvista, a non-profit pharmacy; major manufacturers of HIV medications; and the State of Florida's AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP). Florida's ADAP was expected to exhaust all available funds and shut down in early February if an emergency solution was not implemented. With these agreements, the state of Florida projects having enough funds to provide medications to its remaining 3,500 ADAP clients for the remainder of the ADAP fiscal year (through March 31, 2011). The plan will be final when the state of Florida and Welvista sign their operational agreement, expected to occur in the next several days.View Full Article
