Florida AIDS Drug Assistance Program
The AIDS Insurance Continuation Program (AICP) is a statewide program for persons who are diagnosed with AIDS or are HIV positive with symptoms and who, because of their illness, are unable to maintain their private health insurance coverage. The program makes direct payments (up to $750/month) to each client's employer or insurance company for the continuation of medical, dental, mental health and optical coverage. The AICP does not pay for disability or life insurance. The AICP will also pay any fees associated with conversion of a COBRA policy to an individual policy or policy upgrades. The program will also pay client co-payments and deductibles on an as-needed basis depending on the availability of funds.
