CommunityRx Kansas was approved and funded by the state Legislature in 2005. According to Sebelius, it will offer discounts between 15% and 80% on most generic drugs for uninsured residents with annual incomes up to 200% of the federal poverty level who do not qualify for public health insurance programs. An estimated 150,000 Kansas residents are eligible for the program, according to Sebelius. Right Choice Pharmacy and Prescription Network of Kansas will administer CommunityRx, which will cost participants $10 annually. The state will pay about $200,000 to process the program, and the 286 participating pharmacies will absorb the actual cost of offering the discounted drugs, the Eagle reports.This is another great plan implemented by the states to help people out. It's inexpensive and will help 150,000 people afford the drugs they need.
That, coupled with the plan to give extra assistance with Medicare Part D enrollment, and Kansas just ain't looking as red as it used to.
