The Pequot Pharmaceutical program is administered by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe of Connecticut; participation in it is available to all federally-recognized Indian tribes. The program will provide you, free-of-charge, with postage-paid envelopes. Brand name and generic drugs, as well as diabetic supplies, are available, but you must have a current and valid prescription from a licensed medical practitioner. It’s generally a good idea to renew your prescription when you have about a 14-day supply left. Tribal members are responsible for the cost of any prescription filled through this program. Please call the office and ask to speak with Tribal Administrator Jodi Hayes if you have any questions.
