Coupon Card - Medication Target List

Drug manufacturers actively are promoting coupon cards for a variety of high-cost, branded medications. The selling point for coupon cards is that they reduce or eliminate the patient’s out-of-pocket expense, though the availability over time cannot be guaranteed. The consequence is that the total cost of the prescription is often MUCH higher than therapeutic alternatives.

Nebraska Emergency Treatment Order (NETO)

The advanced illness work group has developed this program to assist providers in helping patients plan for medical emergencies. No changes may be made to the NETO forms below, please print them exactly as indicated to preserve consistency across settings.
