What are my insurance options?
LA HAP stands for Louisiana Health Access Program, which is the ADAP for the state of Louisiana. ADAP stands for AIDS Drug Assistance Program, a funding source available to every state through the federal Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) that can be used to provide access to medications for uninsured individuals and assistance with cost shares for insured individuals. Assistance is provided through two LA HAP components known as L-DAP and HIP.
