ADAP as TrOOP: How States Can Save Big Starting in 2011

Among the myriad provisions of the historic health care reform legislation past this spring is a policy change that (beginning in 2011) will allow struggling state AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs) transition beneficiaries to Medicare Part D.  This is accomplished by allowing ADAP expenditures count towards Medicare Part D true out-of-pocket costs.

Confused?  You’re not alone.

Dose of Change hosted a webinar with policy experts John Coburn of Health and Disability Advocates and Ann Lefert of National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors to help AIDS advocates prepare for this coming change.
