||Nevada’s Senior Rx prescription program benefits:
- Assistance with prescription costs when in the Medicare Part D coverage gap (donut hole).
- Assistance towards monthly premiums with participating Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan (if not qualified for maximum extra help from Medicare with that expense).
- Senior Rx, Nevada's plan to provide Nevada seniors relief from the high cost of prescription medicine while in the coverage gap (donut hole). Senior Rx provides assistance to seniors who are eligible for Part D with Medicare Part D expenses.
- 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. Many of the program’s benefits are administered through a contracted pharmacy benefit manager (OptumRx). Other benefits are coordinated directly with the Medicare Part D plans that serve as the first prescription drug resource for enrolled members.
