What Prescription Assistance is Available in Colorado?
In addition to the assistance offered by pharmaceutical companies, help is available to Colorado residents through several state-sponsored prescription assistance programs. Many people living with chronic diseases such as COPD, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular disease, asthma, and diabetes depend on these programs to maintain a steady supply of the medications they must take regularly to manage their symptoms and prevent, or at least slow, the progression of their medical conditions.
Health First Colorado (the new name for Colorado Medicaid) is a public insurance option for children and families, pregnant women, the elderly, and individuals with disabilities who have a household income that meets the income guidelines, which are indexed to the Federal Poverty Level. An application for Colorado Medicaid will also be considered for Family Medicaid and for CHP+ (see below).
Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) provides prescriptions at a low cost or no cost at all for uninsured children and pregnant women who do not meet the income requirements to qualify for Medicaid. The program is open to all legal residents of Colorado. Individuals who are 18 years of age or older must provide proof of their lawful presence in the United States in order to be eligible.
The Colorado Drug Card is a free, state-sponsored prescription discount program open to all Colorado residents. There are no other eligibility requirements. Discounts average 30% but can be as much as 80% for some medications.
The Ryan White State Drug Assistance Program (SDAP) provides prescription assistance for Coloradans living with HIV/AIDS whose income is below 500% of the Federal Poverty Level.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill is dedicated to easing the financial burden on people living with chronic diseases and medical conditions requiring long-term treatment with medications they can’t afford without sacrificing other necessities. We understand that even people with private insurance, as well as the uninsured and underinsured may not be able to meet high U.S. prescription costs, and we know that help is available, though many who need it are unaware of the existence of prescription assistance. We serve as a bridge between Coloradans who need help paying for their prescriptions and the programs that can provide it.
How does Colorado Prescription Assistance Work?
The prescription assistance available to Colorado residents who qualify ranges from discounted prescription process to prescription medications provided free of charge. In most cases, those receiving prescription assistance will need to reapply or have their eligibility re-evaluated after a certain period of time.
