DC Rx Card

While the Medicaid outpatient prescription drug benefit is not a mandatory benefit, all states provide this benefit in their Medicaid programs. As of 2014, Medicaid spending on outpatient prescription drugs registered at $27 billion, or about six percent of Medicaid spending. As a significant cost center, states continue to struggle with controlling Medicaid prescription drug spending including the high-cost of "specialty" drugs. Emerging issues such as specialty drugs will continue to have broader implications for the administration of the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program (MDRP).
The DC Rx Card is a free resource for you to help lower out-of-pocket prescription costs.  If you have a high deductible or take a medication not covered by insurance or do not have prescription coverage, the DC Rx Card can save you up to 75%.  Log onto  www.dcrxcard.com or www.dcchamber.org to print a free card.  You can also walk into any CVS/pharmacy and request to use the DC Rx Card program.
