What is the Rhode Island Best Rx Savings Program?
Rhode Island’s Best Rx Savings Program has been designed to lower the cost of prescriptions for eligible residents of Rhode Island.
Patient Assistance Programs

Many drug manufacturers have their own prescription discount programs, known as Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs), that provide drugs at no or very low cost to patients who meet their eligibility requirements. PAPs generally have lower income limitations than Rhode Island’s Best Rx and require frequent renewal of applications, but they can be a great source of additional assistance for people who qualify for them.

The pharmaceutical industry operates a national clearinghouse, the Partnership for Prescription Assistance, which links patients to information about more than 475 public and private programs, including nearly 200 offered by pharmaceutical companies.

Your local Department of Human Services office may be aware of other local programs providing this type of assistance.

Please Note: With the new Medicare Prescription Drug Program in place some PAPs will not accept applications from those eligible for Medicare. Please contact Partnership for Prescription Assistance to investigate.
