Effective March 31, 2015, the HCSF no longer administers AICP and AWAPP. All services will be provided through the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) central offices in Tallahassee and the local county health department in the state.
AIDS Insurance Continuation Program (AICP)
The Health Council of South Florida, Inc. (HCSF) has had a long history with the AIDS Insurance Continuation Program (AICP) since its inception over 25 years ago. This program has enabled its beneficiaries to maintain vital health insurance benefits ensuring them access to needed care and treatment. AICP avoids the transfer of HIV/AIDS care cost to the public sector by decreasing the demands of low income persons with HIV/AIDS on Medicaid and other public sector programs.
As Program Administrators, the HCSF connected low income Floridians with an HIV/AIDS diagnosis, to services through its partnership and network of fifteen (15) Community Based Organizations (CBOs). Clients accessing the program are able to receive thoughtful, compassionate care and services delivered by trusted local community sources. This partnership is fundamental to implementing and propelling the State’s agenda for the health of all Floridians.
For more information, contact your local County Health Department or visit the Florida Department of Health website for a complete list of locations.
ADAP Wrap Around Pilot Project (AWAPP)

AWAPP provides eligible clients with assistance in the payment of out-of-pocket Medicare Part "D" pharmacy and deductible expenses.
