The goal of the Delaware Prescription Assistance Program (DPAP) is to help pay for prescription medications for elderly and/or disabled individuals who cannot afford the full cost of filling their doctor\'s prescriptions.
The Delaware Prescription Assistance Program will provide each eligible individual with up to $3000 per year toward medically necessary prescription drugs. The program does not pay for diabetic drugs or supplies for Medicare recipients. Medicare currently provides this coverage for both insulin and non-insulin dependent patients.
Clients must make a co-payment of 25% of the cost of the prescription, or a minimum of $5. The co-pay is collected by the dispensing pharmacy. The pharmacy submits a claim to DPAP and is reimbursed directly.
You may qualify for prescription assistance if you are a Delaware resident, and
You are at least 65 years of age, or you are receiving Social Security Disability benefits,
Your income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), or your prescription costs exceed 40% of your annual income.
