Disability Rx is funded with a portion of the Nevada’s share of tobacco settlement funds and was passed into law during the 1999 Legislative session. Program benefits are coordinated directly with the Medicare Part D Plans that serve as the first prescription drug resource for enrolled members.
Program Changes Effective January 1, 2020
Eligible for Medicare: Applicants must be eligible for Medicare and enroll in Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (part D) and use that program as the first source of help with prescriptions. In addition, beneficiaries who qualify for Extra 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 Extra Help may cover more of the beneficiary’s out-of-pocket costs than the Disability Rx Program.
Income: Includes income from all sources for both applicant and spouse. Effective July 1, 2019, the maximum annual household income for singles is $29,869, and the maximum annual household income for married couples is $39,816. Proof of income is required when submitting a new application. Acceptable forms for proof of income include your 2018 tax return or 12-months of your most recent bank statements (deposit page only).
Residency: Applicants must have lived continuously in Nevada for at least 12 consecutive months (one year) prior to the date of application.
