The L.I.F.E. Program®

March 04, 2015

Dear AICP Clients:

The AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) is continuing to centralize its services for all  clients. The purpose is to create efficiencies and respond to recommendations made by the Health  Resources  and  Services  Administration (HRSA).

Our records indicate that you are currently receiving monthly premium assistance, copayment and/or  deductible  services  through  the ADAP/AIDS  Insurance Continuation  Program {AICP).


Effective March 31, 2015, the Health Council of South Florida, Inc., (HCSF) will no longer administer  AICP  with  access through  local community  based organizations.                                       

 Services  w
ill be provided through the ADAP  central office and the  local county  health departments  in the state.



  • AICP is not going away; current AICP clients and new AICP applicants who are  eligible will receive assistance.
    • If you are currently receiving assistance through AICP; the HCSF will make payments for you through April 30, 2015.
      • You will receive insurance bills, letters, invoices or a coupon book from the insurance company. Please take all of the information you receive in the month of February or March from the insurance company to your local county health department ADAP office before March 30, 2015. This will ensure  premium payments are made timely and  correctly.
      • Beginning May 1, 2015, all future payments will be made through the ADAP central office.
      • The ADAP is setting up a series of conference calls for you to participate in and ask any questions you might have. We will notify you of those dates and times.
Through the  month of March, the  HCSF will continue to work  with the ADAP  program to  ensure a seamless transition for you. If you have any questions about your current services, please contact the HCSF at 1-855-659-7072 or 305-592-1452 and select option 3 to speak with an AICP staff.

With the creation of the Insurance Marketplace, the healthcare services are changing.  The ADAP office is doing everything possible to manage its funding and continue services to all clients.   One example is the  shift  of  high cost  insurance  plans to  more cost effective options.

As the program continues to evolve to meet the changes in the healthcare law, and manage costs appropriately, one of the things we will not change is our commitment to high-quality treatment and care services for our clients.
