WHAT IS CADAP?: The Connecticut AIDS Drug Assistance Program (CADAP) helps eligible people living with AIDS/HIV, including immigrants without green cards, pay for federally approved HIV antiretroviral drugs and drugs which prevent opportunistic infections associated with AIDS/HIV. The list of approved drugs is extensive and new drugs are added as they are approved.
NOTE: The Connecticut Insurance Assistance Program for AIDS Patients (CIPA) is funded through CADAP. So, CADAP will now pay health insurance premiums for anyone who is already covered by a CIPA-approved health insurance policy, and is eligible for the program.
COST: No fee
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?:
– People with AIDS or HIV who have a net countable income at or below 400% of the Federal Poverty Level.
– People who have been diagnosed by a licensed physician as having AIDS, HIV+ symptomatic, and/or an HIV infection.
– Individuals applying for the program must not be a Medicaid (Husky A,B, or C) or Medicaid coverage for the Lowest-Income Population (Husky D) recipient. There is no asset restriction for CADAP.
Note: CADAP eligibility must be reviewed and renewed every six months!
HOW TO APPLY: Request application from CADAP office at Connecticut State Department of Social Services or download from DSS website: (www.ct.gov/dss/lib/dss/PDFs/CADAPapp03.pdf)
