What Prescription Assistance is Available in Kansas?
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 Kansas Drug Card is available to all Kansas, free of charge, with no eligibility requirements to be met. The card provides discounts averaging 30% on most medications and is widely accepted by pharmacies throughout the state. The discount on some medications can be as high as 80%.
Healthwave is a Medicaid managed care plan that covers children from families with no affordable access to private insurance. Families whose income exceeds 150% of the federal poverty level must pay a small monthly premium.
Kansas Medical Assistance Program (KMAP) is the formal name of the Kansas Medicaid program, which is jointly funded by the federal and state governments. It provides health insurance, including prescription coverage for children and their caretakers, seniors, the blind and disabled, and pregnant women who have no other insurance and meet Medicaid income guidelines. Applicants must be able to prove legal residence in the United States.
The Kansas Ryan White Part B Program is a drug assistance program for Kansans living with HIV/AIDS who have no prescription coverage or are underinsured and meet the income eligibility criteria. The program provides HIV-related prescription medications at little or no cost.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
At Simplefill, we are dedicated to bridging the gap between people who need help paying for the prescriptions they need to manage their chronic medical conditions and the programs and organizations that offer such assistance. Many people who need prescription assistance aren’t even aware that help is available to ease their financial burden, which can make a big difference in their stress level and quality of life.
How Does Kansas Prescription Assistance Work?
Each prescription assistance program has its own eligibility criteria and offers specific benefits. In the case of the prescription assistance programs offered by pharmaceutical companies, those benefits typically are in the form of a free supply of a covered medication for a certain period—generally six or twelve months. When that time is up, the patient must reapply for assistance.
Government-sponsored programs may offer full coverage for prescription medications, or they may require a small co-pay from patients.
How to Get Prescription Assistance
Once you apply for Simplefill membership online or by calling us at (877)386-0206 we’ll conduct a brief telephone interview with you. From there, there’s not much else you’ll need to do, because we do it all for you.
We’ll use the information you provide in response to the interview questions to establish your member profile. We’ll then use that profile to match your needs and circumstances to the prescription assistance programs most likely to provide the help you need. We’ll handle all the paperwork required to apply for and enroll in those programs. Then, once you’re enrolled, we’ll monitor your case and make sure you’re never without the medications you depend on to manage your chronic medical condition.
When your treatment plan changes, we’ll update your profile accordingly. If new medications have been added, we’ll get you some prescription assistance for those as well.
Apply with Simplefill today, and it won’t be long before you’re paying little, if anything, for your Kansas medications.
