Naloxone Dispensing in Pharmacies and the Naloxone Copayment Assistance Program (N-CAP)

This webinar was presented by Harm Reduction Coalition’s Medical Director, Dr. Sharon Stancliff, on December 15th, 2017.

New York State has replaced the replaced the Amphastar generic product with the Adapt Narcan® single step formulation as part of the Opioid Overdose Initiative. NYSDOH has created the Naloxone Co-payment Assistance Program (N-CAP). Individuals with prescription coverage as part of their health insurance plan can access naloxone at their local pharmacy and N-CAP will cover co-payments in an amount up to $40. Each prescription dispensed will be billed to N-CAP, not to the individual getting naloxone. This will apply to prescriptions written for an individual and those obtained under standing orders.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

    • Instruct people on the use of the new Adapt Narcan formulation
  • Describe naloxone standing orders in pharmacies for naloxone
  • Explain how the Naloxone Co-pay Assistance Program (N-CAP) works.
