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").

  • Butoconazole (Gynazole) topical cream
  • Clindamycin
  • Clotrimazole troche lozenges

  • Nystatin oral suspension
  • Prednisone
  • Primaquine phosphate
  • Rifampin

The Medical Certification Form, THMP Formulary List, Program Guidelines and Pharmacy Guidelines have all been updated to reflect the additional medications, and are all available for download on the Documents page.  Should you have any questions, please call the THMP at 1-800-255-1090.

Hurricane Preparedness

Hurricane Preparedness for Texas HIV Medication Program Clients

It's always a good idea to make plans in advance for your medical needs during hurricane season in Texas. As evidenced in recent years, the hardship experienced during an evacuation from the impending storm can be stressful enough without the added complication of interrupting your antiretroviral dosing regimen and the subsequent lapse in therapy. With that in mind, the THMP has prepared an informational guide to assist you in planning for what to have on hand ready to take with you should an evacuation occur, along with a form you can fill out summarizing the crucial medical information you'll need to have available:
