Prescription Drug Program
Or, if you are a senior having trouble paying for your Viaga or any other prescription drug, you don’t have to worry about how much in premiums you are going to pay for in the new Medicare Prescription drug program that only pays a portion of your drugs costs anyway, and doesn’t even start until 2006. There are current programs at state governments and even from the drug companies themselves where you can be making up to $40,000 a year, at any age, and get all of your prescription drugs for free right now.
Depending upon your situation with Medicare and Medicaid, you may or may not be eligible for this program, but it is worth a call for clarification. It is also helpful to know about this in the future if your situation changes. Eligibility issues: Indiana resident for at least 90 days and age 65 or older. May not have insurance that includes a prescription drug benefit. Must have a monthly income which is less than $997 for individuals or less than $1,344 for couples. Contact HoosierRX, P.O.
