What Prescription Assistance is Available in Idaho?
If you or a member of your household is living with a chronic disease—such as cardiovascular disease, COPD, Parkinson’s disease, kidney failure, dementia, asthma or Crohn’s disease, you may be struggling to maintain a steady supply of essential prescription medications. Idaho residents have access to prescription assistance from pharmaceutical companies and through certain state-sponsored programs.
The Idaho Rx Card gives all residents of Idaho access to prescription discounts averaging 30%. The discount on some medications can be up to 80%. There are no eligibility requirements other than Idaho residency, and cards are distributed free of charge.
Idaho’s Medicaid programs provide prescription coverage for children and adults that meet certain eligibility criteria. Adults, including pregnant women, women with breast or cervical cancer, seniors, and the blind and disabled are eligible for Medicaid if their income falls below a certain level. Children from low-income families and children who have disabilities or behavioral health needs are also eligible for Medicaid.
The Idaho IDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) helps HIV-positive Idaho residents who are uninsured or underinsured and who meet the income eligibility requirements pay for their HIV-related prescription medications.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill provides an easy way for people struggling to pay for the medications they need in order to manage their chronic medical conditions to get the prescription assistance they need. For people who have been carrying the financial burden of maintaining an uninterrupted supply of costly medications, that prescription assistance can make a big difference in their stress level and quality of life. We take pride in serving as a bridge between those who need help paying for essential medications and the programs and organizations that offer such assistance.
How does Idaho Prescription Assistance Work?
The specific details vary by program, as each one has its own eligibility criteria and offers its own benefits. In general, pharmaceutical companies offer deep discounts on the medications they produce or provide those medications free of charge to patients who qualify, typically for a period of six or twelve months before they must reapply. State-sponsored programs may cover prescription costs with only a small co-pay or with no co-pay at all.
How to Get Prescription Assistance
We help our members obtain the prescription assistance they need, so the first thing you’ll need to do is become a Simplefill member by applying online or by phone at (877)386-0206. Within 24 hours at most you’ll be called by one of our patient advocates, who will ask you for the information we’ll need to construct your member profile—mainly, your prescriptions, your income, and your insurance status.
We’ll then use your member profile to identify the prescription assistance programs that you should qualify for and that are likely to provide the help you’re seeking. We’ll take care of all the paperwork, so there’s no need for you to do anything but wait to see how little you’ll soon be paying, if anything, for your prescription medications. We’ll prepare and submit applications to the programs we’ve short-listed for you, and when you’re approved, we’ll take care of getting you enrolled.
Moving forward, we’ll keep an eye on things so that you’re never without the medications you need, and we’ll update your member profile whenever your health care providers make changes to your treatment plan. When new medications are prescribed for you, we’ll get you some prescription assistance for them as well.
