CT ElderLaw: Prescription Drug Assistance
The State of Connecticut and some drug manufactures offer programs that help certain persons who need prescription medications. Medicare now offers a separate, voluntary drug benefit program called Medicare Part D. Because of this program, Medicaid no longer pays for most prescription drugs needed by those with Medicaid and Medicare (called "the dually-eligible"). Medicare Part D is a requirement for the dually-eligible and for ConnPACE recipients. Add To Favorites
