ADAP Plus Insurance Continuation (APIC)

APIC was started by the New York State Department of Health’s AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) on July 1, 2000.  This program pays premiums for comprehensive insurance for people with HIV/AIDS who do not have Medicaid or do not meet the eligibility criteria for the AHIP Program. Also pays for Medicare Part D, COBRA and an employee’s portion of the cost of group insurance if meet criteria.  If you do not qualify for Medicaid or the AHIP Program but you meet the eligibility criteria for ADAP (see below) you can file an application for APIC, which has the same financial eligibility criteria as the ADAP program.
