"ADAPs remain at the forefront of adapting HIV care and treatment services to an evolving public health landscape. Supporting clients in public and private insurance coverage under the ACA is a tremendous opportunity to improve the overall health of clients and maximize Ryan White Program resources. These figures represent a huge success for ACA enrollment and implementation, demonstrating the ability of our ADAP and Ryan White Program system of care to transition vulnerable populations to new insurance coverage and keep them engaged in the health system in order to achieve healthy outcomes and ultimately prevent new infections," summarized the National Alliance of State & Territorial AIDS Directors' (NASTAD) Executive Director, Murray Penner, upon releasing some important findings on July 24, 2015.

Penner's statement was in response to the AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs) assisting 68,000 clients living with HIV/AIDS being served by the program gain access to health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
