RxAssist is funded through private foundations, like the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, through corporate sponsorships such as the partnership with Express Scripts and also from private donations.
Area Five Agency on Aging took over management of the RxAssist program in mid April 2008 from Logansport Memorial Hospital. Since that time we have grown the program to include screening for all benefits for which a person may be eligible. Currently we have over 300 clients receiving medications in Cass and surrounding counties.
Clients must provide financial information insurance information and sign forms that are then sent to their physicians to sign. Area Five then completes the paperwork and sends the information to the participating drug companies.
Most medications are free or very low cost. This compliments the Medicare D plans, and the FamilyWize discount plans very well helping our community residents fill in the healthcare gaps that currently exist.
For more information to see if you qualify call the Area Five ADRC at our direct line 574-722-4451 or 800-654-9421.
