Nevada Senior Rx Program


Eligiblity Requirements: You must meet the following requirements:
  • You must be a Nevada resident for at least one year.
  • Your income must not exceed limits for yourself (one person $27,701 annually) and your spouse (couple $36,927 annually).
  • You must be ineligible for Medicaid.
  • Applicant and spouse(if spouse is applying)must be age 18 through 61 with verifiable disability, or 62 years at the time of application.
  • Applicants who are eligible for Medicare Part D must enroll in a Medicare prescription drug plan and use that program as the first source of help with prescriptions. In addition, Part D beneficiaries who qualify for extra federal help with Part D costs (such as premiums, deductibles and co-payments)must apply for and, if approved, use that help. This is important because the federal help may cover more of the beneficiary's out-of-pocket costs than Senior Rx or Disability Rx can.
  • Beneficiaries with very low incomes and limited assets should contact the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 to find out more.
Important Notes: Senior Rx provides assistance with Medicare Part D expenses for members who ARE eligible for Part D and a cost-sharing benefit for members who are NOT eligible for Part D.

Nevada’s Senior Rx prescription program currently has a waitlist. The persons on the wait list with the lowest household income designated, receive priority for enrollment.

Senior Rx is funded with a portion of Nevada’s share of tobacco settlement funds and was passed into law during the 1999 legislative session. Senior Rx provides up to $5,100 in benefits per year depending on the member’s situation. Many of the program’s benefits are administered through a contracted pharmacy benefit manager (Catalyst Rx). Other benefits are coordinated directly with the Medicare Part D plans that serve as the first prescription drug resource for enrolled members.

Based on funding availability, the benefits are For those who are Not Medicare Eligible: No monthly premium, No deductible, Co-payments of $10 for generics or $25 for preferred brands, and Annual coverage limit of $5,100. For those who are Medicare Eligible: Help with monthly premiums for Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan (if not qualified for maximum help from Medicare with that expense). Help with prescription costs after reaching the Medicare Part D coverage limit

Enrollment for Nevada’s Senior RX Program is open.
  • You do not need to attach income, age, or disability verification to the application. However, you may be asked to provide such documentation at a later date.
  • Please include a copy of Medicare card and Medicare Part D card if Medicare eligible.
  • Married couples need to submit only one application for both spouses.
  • You will be notified of eligibility status within 30-45 days of receipt of your application unless the Department of Health and Human Services needs to request additional information to process your application.

  • You must be a Nevada resident must have lived continuously in Nevada for at least one year (12 consecutive months) prior to the date of application.
  • The maximum annual household income for singles is $27,292, and the maximum annual household income for married couples is $36,381 (effective July 1, 2013).
  • You must be ineligible for Medicaid.

  • You cannot receive full Medicaid benefits (prescription benefits) and Disability Rx at the same time.
  • You must be between the ages of 18 through 61 and have a verifiable disability.
Important Notes: The State provides assistance with Medicare Part D expenses for members who are eligible for Part D and a cost-sharing benefit for members who are not eligible for Part D.

The program has limited funding and currently has a waiting list. Married couples need to submit only one application for both spouses. Disability Rx provides up to $5,100 in benefits per year. For non-Medicare members, many of the most commonly prescribed drugs are available through Disability Rx for a co-pay of $10 for generics and $25 for preferred brands.

For Medicare members, the state will offer assistance with Part D premiums, not to exceed the federal low-income benchmark, and will cover 100% of costs in the coverage gap.
