VA MAP Formulary

 

The VA ADAP has a new name – the VA Medication Assistance Program (VA MAP).  The Advisory Committee to VA MAP (formerly, the ADAP Advisory Committee) recently met to review the formulary. Updates include medication or vaccine additions, removal of medications due to low/no utilization or outdated clinical indications, and updates for medications or vaccines that were already on the formulary. Please refer to the VA MAP/ADAP website for additional program information: https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/disease-prevention/virginia-aids-drug-assistance-program-adap/

FDA Approved Medication Update

    • Human papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine- Requires a VA MAP Medication Exception Form; this is authorized only for clients with a CD4 count of 200 or more, and used as indicated in males and females up to age 45 years. (Change in Age Range).
    • On June 12, 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Tivicay (dolutegravir) tablets and Tivicay PD (dolutegravir) tablets for suspension to treat HIV-1 infection in pediatric patients at least four weeks old and weighing at least 3 kg (6.61 pounds) in combination with other antiretroviral treatments.

Immediate Action Steps:

    • The policy, procedure, and forms for the RWHAP B formulary are on the HCS intranet site. RWHAP sites must currently have RWHAP B funds to pay for medications and get reimbursement. If they do not, it will be easiest for an RWHAP B medical provider or medical case management provider to assist client in accessing meds on the RWHAP B formulary (under the service category of Outpatient Ambulatory Health Services), since they submit for reimbursement with their monthly invoices to VDH.
