What Michigan Prescription Assistance Is Available?
Michigan residents can benefit from enrolling in a prescription assistance program. These programs help pay for the prescription drugs they need in order to manage symptoms or perhaps slow the progress of serious chronic illnesses such as:
- Congestive heart failure
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson’s disease
These diseases have something in common, they all require an uninterrupted supply of pricey medications. Michiganders have access to prescription assistance programs offered by pharmaceutical companies, and state-funded prescription assistance options.
The Michigan Rx Card is available free, for all residents of Michigan. If you haven’t already received a card, you can download and print a free, pre-activated card and begin enjoying discounts of up to 80% on your prescription medications.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), offers several ways for people who meet certain eligibility requirements to get prescription assistance.
The Michigan Medicaid Program includes a prescription coverage package, to low-income adults and children, on a fee-for-services basis or through a managed care plan. Medicaid enrollees typically have a co-pay of $1 or $3 depending on the specific medication—though some people are exempt from the co-pay requirement.
Low-income pregnant women and children under the age of 19 are eligible for the Healthy Kid program. This provides prescription coverage and many other health care services at no cost. MIChild offers non-qualified children similar benefits for a monthly premium of only $10.
The Michigan AIDS Drug Assistance Program (MIDAP) provides prescription assistance for Michiganders living with HIV/AIDS who meet the eligibility requirements for income, residency, lack of insurance coverage, and HIV/AIDS status.
