New Eligibility for Prescription Drug Assistance


More older Pennsylvanians will qualify for prescription drug assistance thanks to newly enacted eligibility standards.

Act 87 increases the annual maximum income limits for the state’s PACENET program from $23,500 to $27,500 for a single person and from $31,000 to $35,500 for a married couple.

Pennsylvania’s PACENET and PACE programs, which are funded by the state lottery, provide low-cost prescription drugs to nearly 282,000 residents age 65 and older.
