This program has "Lowest Price" logic to guarantee that you get the best pricing on prescriptions (Card holders pay the lower of a discount off Average Wholesale Price - AWP, discount off MAC Pricing, or Pharmacy Promotional/Retail price) This program can be used by people who have Health Savings Accounts (HSA's) and High Deductible Plan's. Also, when New Jersey residents who are on Medicaid reach a "donut hole" in thier Part D coverage gap, meaning the beneficiary is financially responsible for the entire cost of prescription drugs until the expense reaches catastrophic coverage threshold. They can off set the costs by using the prescription card.
