It had been a wild few weeks and I can’t thank you enough for all you have done to assist our clients.
As we return to our offices, LA ADAP will continue the lifted recertification requirements through Friday, Sept 7th. During this time LA ADAP is approving all LSU Medical Center Outpatient Pharmacies (ADAP pharmacies) to provide LA ADAP services to:
* Active Medical Center LA ADAP clients, which are clients that receive their HIV related medical care through one of the 10 LSU Medical Centers in Louisiana, have been active on LA ADAP since before capped enrollment on 6/1/10 and have previously not received an ADAP card;
* Active LA ADAP clients presenting an LA ADAP card with an expiration date of either 6/30/12 or 12/31/12; and
* Active LA ADAP clients who have not yet received their current card but are on the pharmacies’ “approved” spreadsheet from LA ADAP.
This approval is also extended to evacuated clients that may need to access ADAP services at an LSU pharmacy (locations attached) other than the one they usually access. In addition, we ask that your work with evacuated clients to help them get prescription either called in from their clinician or transferred from their usual pharmacy.
Clients in the process of moving from the Unmet Need List to LA ADAP who have not yet received their ADAP card and are not yet list on your ADAP approved spreadsheet should be directed to continue accessing their medications through PAPs.
Jennifer Carlos Gomez will be out of the office until Friday, September 7th. In her absence, please direct all ADAP related communications to me.
As your medical centers, pharmacies, and agencies return from Hurricane Isaac, please keep our office informed of closures and preparedness plans so that we can share this information with our provider and clients.
