Delaware Prescription Assistance Program


The Delaware Prescription Assistance Program (DPAP) began January 14, 2000 as a result of the passage of Senate Bill 6 during the 1999 legislative session. This program is funded through tobacco settlement funds, and provides up to $2500 per individual in each calendar year for eligible clients. The goal of the program is to provide prescription assistance to elderly and/or disabled individuals currently without prescription coverage who have incomes below 200% of the poverty level or have prescription costs exceeding 40% of their income. This program covers medically necessary prescription drugs. The program does not pay for any of the drugs or diabetic supplies for Medicare recipients. Medicare currently covers these supplies for both insulin and non-insulin dependent patients. Clients must make a co-payment of $5 or 25% of the cost of the prescription, whichever is greater. The co-pay is collected by the dispensing pharmacy.
