Attention ConnPACE

Budget Crisis Affects Prescription Coverage

Recipients: Please be aware that as of June 1, 2009 no new prescriptions for non-formulary drugs will be covered under the ConnPACE program;  regardless of the Medicare Part D  plan you have chosen. Only prescriptions for non-formulary drugs written prior to June 1, 2009 will continue to be covered. All ConnPACE consumers are urged to speak with their physicians about any new prescriptions to ensure that they stay on-formulary if at all possible or run the risk of paying out of pocket.The CHOICES program at your local Area Agency on Aging can assist with information on alternatives and will keep you informed as to additional changes as they arise.
