What Prescription Assistance is Available in Indiana?
Prescription assistance is available for patients living with just about any chronic disease, including multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, kidney disease, and more. The cost of maintaining an uninterrupted supply of the medications used to treat and manage such conditions can be prohibitive for many people, especially the uninsured and underinsured.
Indiana residents can get prescription assistance from pharmaceutical companies that offer certain medications free to people who meet their eligibility requirements. There are also some state-sponsored programs offering prescription assistance to those who qualify.
Indiana offers several Medicaid programs with different eligibility criteria related to income, age, and medical needs. These include:
- Hoosier Healthwise for children under age 19, pregnant women, and low-income families.
- Hoosier Care Connect for seniors, the blind, and disabled who do not qualify for Medicare. Children in foster care and who have aged out of foster care are also eligible.
- Healthy Indiana Plan for non-disabled Hoosiers ages 19-64.
- Traditional Medicaid plans
- Medicaid managed care plans
Hoosier Rx is Indiana’s state-sponsored pharmaceutical assistance program for people below a certain income level who have applied to the Social Security Administration for “Medicare Extra Help” and have received either a Notice of Award or a Notice of Denial giving only a partial extra help subsidy. The program helps pay the premium for Medicare Part D for Hoosier Rx members enrolled in a Medicare Part D plan.
Indiana’s HIV Services Program offers prescription assistance to Indiana residents living with HIV/AIDS.
The Indiana Drug Card is available free of charge to all Indiana residents regardless of income or insurance status. It provides discounts averaging 30% on a wide range of prescription medications. On some medications, the discount can be as high as 80%.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
At the most basic level, we provide stress relief and some peace of mind for people burdened by the high cost of the prescription medications they need in order to manage their chronic medical problems and perhaps slow or prevent disease progression. By connecting those who need prescription assistance with the programs and organizations offering payment assistance to Indiana residents, we aim to improve the quality of life for chronic disease sufferers and their families.
How Does Indiana Prescription Assistance Work?
Prescription assistance programs offered by drug manufacturers typically are provided through non-profit foundations sponsored by those companies. It’s common for such programs to provide prescription medications at no cost to those who meet the eligibility criteria, usually for a period of six to twelve months, after which they must reapply. Some government programs provide prescription medications free of charge to those who qualify, while others require a small co-pay.
