Introducing “BUP-DAP”, DC Health’s newest approach to encourage DC residents experiencing substance use or misuse to start and stay in medicated assisted treatment.  BUP-DAP which stands for Buprenorphine Drug Assistance Program, is designed to increase access to drugs used primarily in medication-assisted substance misuse treatment (Buprenorphine, Naltrexone, Suboxone, and Naloxone). When presented to participating pharmacies, it can cover:

  • medicine costs
  • co-pays
  • pharmacy dispensing fees

If you or a loved one, do not have insurance or if your insurance does not cover the medication you need to treat your condition, click the link below to sign up for BUP-DAP.

Once registered all you need is your government issued photo ID.

A Valid Prescription is Required to Utilize BUP-DAP Benefits.
