What is the State Pharmaceutical Assistance Program (SPAP)?
The State Pharmaceutical Assistance Program (SPAP) pays Medicare Part D costs for people who get medicines through the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP). All SPAP clients get their Medicare Part D monthly premiums paid. Some SPAP clients get help with their medication copays/coinsurance, deductibles and costs during gaps in coverage (the “donut hole”).
Patient Services Incorporated (PSI) now manages the SPAP under a contract with the Virginia Department of Health. Please call PSI at (800) 366-7741 to apply for the SPAP and whenever you have questions about your enrollment or benefits.
PSI completed the first customer satisfaction survey for State Pharmaceutical Assistance Program (SPAP) clients. Clients indicated a high level of satisfaction with almost all aspects of the program, and are now seeing the benefits of being assisted with their Medicare Part D premiums and medication costs.
