The key to healthy aging is living a healthier lifestyle now. SenioRx/Wellness teaches you about healthy eating habits, proper exercise and chronic illness management.
SenioRx/Wellness is a program for Alabamians age 55+ and persons with disabilities diagnosed with chronic medical conditions requiring daily medication. The program aims to help people manage their chronic illnesses earlier and prevent more serious health problems later in life. ADSS is partnering with the Alabama Department of Public Health to achieve this goal.
SenioRx/Wellness is also a prescription drug assistance program that helps thousands of Alabamians receive free prescription drugs from pharmaceutical manufacturers.
To qualify for free prescription drugs, you must be at least 55 years of age with chronic medical conditions, have no prescription drug insurance coverage and your income must be at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. Social Security disabled individuals of ANY age in the 24 month Medicare waiting period are eligible for medication assistance. For more information on social security disability go to www.socialsecurity.gov. Volunteers and local coordinators help seniors apply for drug assistance programs provided by pharmaceutical manufacturers.
