​ADAP MANAGEMENT MEMO 2020-19: UPDATE TO MANAGEMENT MEMO 2020-08 AND 2020-12: PREP-AP CONTINGENCY PLAN FOR NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)


The purpose of this Management Memorandum is to provide updated guidance contained in PrEP-APs contingency plan for COVID-19.

Updated Guidance

Gilead informed OA on May 12, 2020 that patients enrolled in a Gilead Patient Assistance Program whose eligibility expired, or will expire, between now through July 1, 2020 will have their eligibility automatically extended through July 31, 2020. Gilead will communicate these updates to clients.

New clients who are enrolling in a Gilead Patient Assistance Program, should continue to submit enrollments through normal channels (i.e., by fax, online enrollment, or by telephone). In situations where enrollments and signatures cannot be submitted through the normal process, Gilead will allow for verbal attestations.

PrEP-AP has completed a second round of eligibility extensions to August 31, 2020 for all clients whose eligibility expired, or will expire, between now and August 30, 2020. PrEP-AP enrollment workers are encouraged to reach out to clients with eligibility expiring between now and August 30, 2020 to inform them of these changes.

If you have any questions regarding the contents of this Management Memorandum, please email the PrEP-AP inbox at PrEPSupport@cdph.ca.gov.

Thank You,
