Drug Discount Cards: 2005
WebMD Medical Reference
What is it?
Until the end of 2005, anyone enrolled in Medicare can apply for an interim drug discount card.
If you are not receiving Medicaid, you may qualify for a yearly credit on the card to help pay for prescriptions. Single people who make $12,919 a year or less, and married couples with an annual income of $17,320 or less are eligible.
If you applied by March 2005, you received the full $600 credit. After that month, the later you apply, the smaller the credit. People who applied between April 1 and June 30 received a $450 credit; those who apply between July 1 and September 30 will get a $300 credit; people who apply between October 1 and December 31 will get a $150 credit.
