Texas HIV Medication Program

HIV and STDs

The Texas HIV Medication Program (THMP) provides medications for the treatment of HIV and its related complications for low-income Texans. To qualify for medications, potential clients who meet eligibility criteria complete an application for assistance. Once approved, a client receives medications at an assigned pharmacy in their community.

To learn more about the THMP and find out if you are eligible, see the Frequently Asked Questions. You can apply for the program by downloading and completing the client application. Be sure and review the specific “application instructions” when completing the application. The application and its instructions are located on the THMP document page. If you have more questions or need assistance completing your application, call the THMP toll free at 1 (800) 255-1090.



The THMP is the official AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) for the State of Texas. The THMP has been in existence since 1987 and provides medications approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of illnesses caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other opportunistic infections in HIV-infected individuals as prescribed by their doctor. THMP also operates the Texas HIV State Pharmaceutical Assistance Program (SPAP) which helps HIV-positive individuals that do not qualify for the full Low Income Subsidy (extra help) with their out-of-pocket costs associated with Medicare Part D prescription drug plans, including co-payments, deductibles, coinsurance, and during the coverage gap (the "donut hole").

New Draft Policy – Request for Multi-Month Medication Supply

The DSHS Texas HIV Medication Program (THMP) has developed a new policy, Request for Multi-Month Medication Supply (700.006). The purpose of the policy is to allow for the dispensing of up to a 90-day supply of medication(s) upon prescription by a treating physician for certain medications in special circumstances, such as out-of-state travel, temporary relocation due to employment or education, and displacement due to disaster.

As part of this process, DSHS asks providers, consumers, and interested stakeholders to review the policy and provide comments. We value your opinion and hope that you will take the time to review and give feedback. Please submit comments to Betsy.Cohn@dshs.texas.gov. Public comment will be accepted until December 10, 2018.
