Pennsylvania Pharmaceutical Assistance for the Elderly

Several hundred thousand Pennsylvania senior citizens are eligible to participate in PACE, the state's low-cost prescription drug program. If you qualify, you will pay $6 for your generic prescriptions or $9 for your name brand prescriptions. The state will pay the rest.

Still thousands more senior citizens have a qualifying income to participate in a second tier of prescription drug benefits called PACENET. If you qualify, you first must meet the average monthly $37-per-person premium before receiving benefits. You will pay $8 for generic drugs and $15 for brand-name drugs.

To receive PACE benefits:

  • you must be a Pennsylvania resident for at least 90 days.
  • you must be at least 65.
  • you must have a household income up to $14,500 for an individual and up to $17,700 for a married couple.

To receive PACENET benefits:

  • you must be a Pennsylvania resident for at least 90 days.
  • you must be at least 65.
  • you must have a household income between $14,500 and $23,500 for an individual and $17,700 and $31,500 for a married couple.

PACE eligibility is subject to annual renewal. Eligibility could be terminated if:

  • you move out of state.
  • you are found guilty of fraud or abuse by the Department of Aging.
  • you are covered by another plan which pays the full cost of your prescriptions.

You may obtain an application from your local Area Agency on Aging, pharmacy, senior citizen center or my office. You do not need to include documentation with your completed application. The programs will verify your information with other agencies. You may apply 30 days prior to your 65th birthday.

Generic Drugs
The state's prescription program requires the use of generic drugs, unless none are available or certain medical restrictions require the use of a brand-name drug.

You must present your PACE card at participating Pennsylvania pharmacies. Participating pharmacies will display the PACE emblem in their windows. Out-of-state pharmacies cannot participate in the program.

If you have questions about PACE or PACENET, call my constituent service office, 1-800-225-PACE or your local Area Agency on Aging. For use with telecommunication devices for the deaf (TTD) call 1-800-222-9004.
