SAME DAY Program


The SAME DAY program was initiated for uninsured clients to have immediate access to most medications and vaccines that needed to be started on the same day or soon after the prescription is written. If you are an uninsured ADAP client, you can use the SAME DAY card to get certain prescription medications and vaccines you need right away.

Important Information about SAME DAY:

Sample SAME DAY card

  • SAME DAY drugs must be on the ADAP formulary
  • Your provider must send your SAME DAY prescription to a participating pharmacy.
  • You must present your SAME DAY ID card at the pharmacy.
  • The program does not cover HIV antiretroviral or hepatitis drugs.
  • Vaccines may not be available at all locations. Contact your pharmacy to confirm they can provide your vaccine.
  • This program does not replace CVS Specialty services. You will keep receiving your regular medications from CVS Specialty.
Getting a SAME DAY ID Card

You will need a SAME DAY ID card to use SAME DAY services. CVS will mail you your SAME DAY ID card. If you haven’t received it or need a replacement, your local ADAP office can print one for you.

ADAP SAME DAY is intended to offer flexibility for ADAP clients. Ryan White Part A or Part B and other local assistance programs can keep using local processes to provide same-day medications.
