PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Legal Newsline) — Amphastar Pharmaceuticals Inc. will increase the company-offered rebate for its Naloxone kits purchased by non-federal government agencies in the state from $4 to $6 per dose, Rhode Island Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin recently announced.

Those who will be eligible for the rebate include state agencies, municipal governments, state and municipal law enforcement agencies, emergency medical service agencies or nonprofit community-based programs.

"I am grateful that Amphastar continues to work with my office to help offset the cost of this life-saving drug for the state, municipalities and community organizations,” Kilmartin said. "I strongly encourage all eligible entities to take advantage of this rebate program. Further, I look forward to working with Gov. Raimondo and the General Assembly on how to maximize the proposed $40,000 in funding for the purchase of Naloxone through this program."

Gov. Raimondo proposed fund allocation for the purchase of naloxone for the police departments in the state. These purchases would be covered under the rebate program deal reached by Amphastar and Kilmartin.
