Texas HIV SPAP
The Texas HIV Medication Program (THMP) runs an HIV State Pharmaceutical Assistance Program (SPAP), which began operating on January 1, 2008. The Texas SPAP was developed to help HIV-positive individuals 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").
