Ohio Best Rx is a prescription drug discount card program designed to lower the cost of prescriptions for all Ohio residents. The goal of Best Rx is to improve access to needed medications at a substantial discount and through an extensive network of participating pharmacies.
Ohio does not have State Pharmaceutical Assistance Programs (SPAPs). Ohio Best Rx is not a qualified SPAP; payments do not count toward Medicare Part D True Out-Of-Pocket Costs (TrOOP).
