Prescription Drug Assistance Available Through PACE, PACENET


Senior citizens who rely on prescription drugs to stay healthy may qualify for financial assistance through the state’s PACE and PACENET prescription drug assistance programs, according to Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint).

PACE and PACENET offer comprehensive prescription coverage to older Pennsylvanians and covers most medications that require prescriptions, including insulin, syringes and insulin needles.

There are no premiums or monthly fees charged to people who enroll. These programs do not cover over-the-counter medicines, medical equipment or doctor, hospital, dental or vision services.

Eligibility restrictions for PACE require that applicants be a resident of Pennsylvania for at least 90 consecutive days prior to application. Additionally, applicants must be age 65 or older and have a total income for the preceding calendar year of less than $14,500 for a single person, or less than $17,700 combined for a married couple living together.

PACENET applicants must also be a resident of Pennsylvania for at least 90 consecutive days prior to application and be age 65 or older. For PACENET, applicants must have had a total income for the preceding calendar year of between $14,500 and $23,500 for a single person, or between $17,700 and $31,500 combined for a married couple living together.

Individuals who believe they qualify for PACE or PACENET can contact Causer’s office at 78 Main St., First Floor, in Bradford, 814-362-4400, or at 2 Allegany Ave. in Coudersport, 814-274-9769. Or log on to www.RepCauser.com for additional information.

PACENET is not free as stated, you must have a Medicare prescription drug plan or they will pick one for you and you pay a monthly subscription fee at your drug store when you get prescriptions--generally around $23 a month.
