  • Pharmacies participating in the New York State AIDS Drug Assistance Program are eligible to participate in N-CAP.
  • There are no or lower out-of-pocket expenses when getting naloxone at a participating pharmacy.
  • Only the following naloxone formulations are eligible for N-CAP coverage:    
    • Narcan® nasal spray (4mg/01 mL); NDC 69547-0353-02
