What Prescription Assistance is Available in Kentucky?
Kentucky offers multiple prescription assistance programs that can help people living with serious chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and other medical conditions. In addition to the prescription assistance programs sponsored by pharmaceutical companies and nonprofit organizations, there are a number of state-funded options.
The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services administers several different programs for low-income Kentucky residents designed to meet the needs of specific populations. The Department for Medicaid Services administers the state’s Medicaid program, which is jointly funded by Kentucky and the federal government. Health coverage, including prescription assistance, is available for eligible children, families, pregnant women, seniors, and disabled individuals.
The Kentucky Rx Card is available at no cost to all Kentucky residents regardless of age, income, or insurance status. Simply download and print a free, pre-activated card and begin enjoying discounts of up to 80% on your prescription medications.
The Kentucky Children’s Health Insurance Program (KCHIP) provides free or low-cost health insurance, including prescription coverage, for uninsured children less than 19 years old whose families have an income below 200% of the federal poverty level.
The Kentucky AIDS Drug Assistance Program (KDAP) provides prescription assistance to Kentucky residents living with HIV/AIDS who meet the eligibility criteria for income, residency, lack of insurance coverage, and HIV/AIDS status.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
At SImplefill, we have made it our mission to help people afford the medications they need to manage their chronic medical problems and other health conditions. The struggle to pay for expensive but necessary prescription drugs can have a significant negative impact on more than a patient’s physical health. The resulting emotional and psychological stress of that financial burden takes a toll on the quality of life of family members as well as the patient.
We aim to make life a little easier and more pleasant for Kentuckians in this situation by connecting people who need help paying for their prescriptions with the programs and organizations that offer assistance.
How Does Kentucky Prescription Assistance Work?
Depending on the specific prescription assistance program, patients who qualify may receive their prescription medications at no cost or for a greatly reduced price. It’s common for patients to have to re-qualify periodically.
