Welcome to Senior Rx, Nevada's plan to provide Nevada seniors relief from the high cost of prescription medicine.  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.

Senior Rx is funded with a portion of Nevadaís 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 memberís situation.  Many of the programís 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

  • 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
