Your State Government: The Missouri Rx Plan

Posted: August 2, 2013

Missouri Rx Plan (MoRx) works with Medicare Prescription Drugs Plans (Part D) to help seniors and persons with disabilities save money on prescription drugs. The state’s pharmacy assistance plan developed by the Missouri General Assembly pays up to 50% of any out-of-pocket costs on prescription medications that are not covered by private insurance or a Medicare Part D Plan.

The free plan saves eligible members 50% on prescription deductibles, 50% on co-pays, and at least 50% of the coverage gap. There is no cap on the benefits.

The plan works with all Medicare D plans and any medication that is covered by the patient’s Medicare Drug Plan will also be covered by MoRx as a 31 day supply. MoRx does not allow mail order prescriptions.

Enrollment is free and open year-round. Once enrolled, you never need to re-apply. Those who qualify for both Medicare and MO HealthNet (Medicaid) benefits will automatically be enrolled into MoRx.

You may qualify for MoRx if you are a Missouri resident, enrolled in a Medicare Part D Plan, and single – with an annual gross household income of $21,660 or less, or married – with an annual income of $29,140 or less.
