Prescription drug coverage is just one of the services provided under the Medicaid umbrella, and is a mandatory service for child populations, but an optional service for adult categories of service. Pharmacy Services is committed to providing quality health care for Medicaid clients as well as all Wyoming citizens.
In addition to administering the multi-faceted Wyoming Medicaid Prescription Drug Program, Pharmacy Services oversees many other programs related to prescription drug services.
Closure of the Prescription Drug Assistance Program
We have been notified that funding for the Prescription Drug Assistance Program (PDAP) has been cut due to budget restrictions. This program covered the cost of 3 prescription medications for individuals with income at or below the Federal Poverty Level. This state funded program has been discontinued, effective July 31, 2016.
Pharmaceutical manufacturer assistance may be available. Please visit www.needymeds.org and search for your prescription to see if assistance is available. You may also call to inquire at 1-800-503-6897.
Assistance may be available through the Wyoming Medication Donation Program (WMDP). This program improves prescription access for low-income Wyoming residents who lack adequate prescription coverage. To inquire about this program please call 1-855-257-5041 or click here for more information.
