Launched by the Ministry of Health in 1996, the Jamaica Drug for the Elderly Programme (JADEP) improves access to essential drugs through payment subsidies. It provides a 100 percent subsidy for specific drugs covering 10 chronic illnesses for all residents of Jamaica over the age of 60. The Cardholder pays a fee to the pharmacy for dispensing the drugs.
When you use your JADEP membership card, the fee shall be as follows:
$40 for one prescription item
$80 for two prescription items
$120 for three prescription items
$160 for four prescription items
$200 for five prescription items
$240 for six or more prescription items
You can use your NHFCard to fill prescription items covered by JADEP.
