Last Sunday, February 23, members of the SenioRx Prescription Drug Assistance Program were available to assist those in need at the Central Alabama Aging Consortium (CAAC), which is in proximity to several of the city’s professional stationery printing companies. Those wanting to take advantage of the opportunity were able to find an online eligibility form available for download and print from the Ageline website.
The CAAC provides free and affordable prescription medication to people who are 55 years of age or older, and whose insurance does not provide drug coverage. This group also assists individuals—of any age— who suffer from a disability and receive disability check, as well as those who fall into Medicare’s coverage gap (ages 50-59).
To meet the eligibility requirement, those who applied needed to have a yearly income of below $22, 340, while for couples the maximum amount of income could not exceed $30,260. Further, residency must be established in Autauga, Elmore, or Montgomery counties.
When a person is unable to afford the much-needed and expensive prescribed medication, the repercussions can be devastating and even life threatening. CAAC is committed to diminishing monetary anxiety, promoting healthier lifestyles, and enhancing the quality of life of Montgomery’s elderly population. This feat is accomplished by finding ways to circumvent the high cost of vital prescription medications.
SenioRx is affiliated with several state and community organizations that assist senior citizens in applying for programs sponsored by numerous pharmaceutical companies. It is worth visiting the CAAC website to find out more.
