Elton Fights for Fla. ADAP

Elton Fights for Fla. ADAP


Pop star and AIDS activist Elton John wrote a letter Tuesday to Florida governor Rick Scott pleading with him not to change income requirements for his state's AIDS Drug Assistance Program.

The ADAP allows HIV-positive people to obtain lifesaving medications for free or at a discounted price. Florida is considering adjusting the financial requirements for the program, so people making over a certain income would be bumped from the program -- 1,600 could be kicked off Florida's ADAP if the change moves forward.

John, founder of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, asked Scott in his letter to leave the program intact, the Associated Press reports.
