The goal of the Delaware Prescription Assistance Program (DPAP) is to help pay for prescription medications for elderly and/or disabled individuals who cannot afford the full cost of filling their doctor's prescriptions.
The Delaware Prescription Assistance Program will provide each eligible individual with up to $3000 per year toward medically necessary prescription drugs. The program does not pay for diabetic drugs or supplies for Medicare recipients. Medicare currently provides this coverage for both insulin and non-insulin dependent patients.

Clients must make a co-payment of 25% of the cost of the prescription, or a minimum of $5. The co-pay is collected by the dispensing pharmacy. The pharmacy submits a claim to DPAP and is reimbursed directly.

You may qualify for prescription assistance if you are a Delaware resident, and

You are at least 65 years of age, or you are receiving Social Security Disability benefits,


Your income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), or your prescription costs exceed 40% of your annual income.

EBT is the US government\s electronic based system in the US for payment of monies to those approved for food and cash benefit payments.

Check EBT Card Balance
States have their methods to log in and check your ETB balance online. We provide that information on our state pages.

Apply for EBT Card
Most states allow online applications for EBT Cards through the application for Food Stamps (SNAP Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) or cash benefits through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). We provided this local office contact for those who want to apply for their EBT in person at this office. After applying for your benefits you will most likely need to come in for an interview at this or another local social service office.
