Government Subsidized Prescription Drug Benefits

Code: NL-5000.2600

Programs offered by local or state government agencies that pay all or a portion of the monthly costs for prescription drugs required by people who meet eligibility requirements for the programs. In some cases, the individual receives a discount card that can be presented to the pharmacist. The individual pays the co-payment amount and the pharmacist bills the sponsoring agency for the remainder. Specific mechanisms and eligibility requirements may vary by jurisdiction.
