The Maryland AIDS Drug Assistance Program (MADAP) ensures that people living with HIV/AIDS in Maryland have access to certain medications they need to help them stay healthy.  MADAP currently serves on average 5,000 clients each month. Clients approved for MADAP must re-apply for the program annually, and also confirm continued eligibility at 6 months. Clients enrolled in MADAP can use MADAP to receive their medications at any of the approximately 1,100 pharmacies that accept Maryland Medical Assistance (Medicaid).


No co-pay at the Pharmacy when using MADAP. However, there may be a monthly participation fee, depending on your income.
