Important income eligibility changes have been made to AIDS DRUG ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (ADAP) and OFFICE OF AIDS- HEALTH INSURANCE PREMIUM PAYMENT (OAHIPP) program. Because of these changes, many more people may be eligible for these programs, and eligibility may discontinue for others.
As of June 24, 2015, the income eligibility criteria for ADAP/OAHIPP changed to individuals with a Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) that does not exceed 500% of the Federal Poverty Level per year based on family size and household income. Now, single individuals with a MAGI of no more than $58,850 per year may be eligible for ADAP/OA-HIPP. For a household of two, the income limit is $79,650. Previously, the maximum qualifying income limit was $50,000 adjusted gross income per person. The old rule did not consider family size or household income.
