SafeNetRx Program

SafeNetRx Logo

A statewide drug donation program developed and administered by the Iowa Department of Public Health and the SafeNetRx program.

About the Program

Since its inception in 2007, Iowa’s SafeNetRx has emerged as the largest prescription and over-the-counter drug repository program in the country. Through this program, Iowans in need of assistance may receive medications and medical supplies for little or no cost. Donations are received from long-term care dispensing pharmacies, medical facilities and individuals. The medications and supplies are inspected by a pharmacist, distributed to medical facilities and dispensed to Iowans in need.

Eligibility Details

Iowans at or below 200% of the federal poverty level, as well as individuals who are uninsured or underinsured, are eligible to receive donated medications and supplies.

Donated Medications

Any organization or individual in the country can donate medications in their original sealed container or in tamper-evident packaging. Any pharmacy or medical facility with authorization to dispense per Iowa administrative rules may re-dispense donated medications and supplies.
