Governor Rendell Proposes Offering Prescription Help to 30,000 More Older Adults as Part of Plan to Save $60 Million
Date:6/2/2009

ing to the state lottery fund of $60.4 million created by the higher reimbursement paid by the drug companies.

Since PACE began in July 1984, it has provided prescription medications for more than 1.2 million state residents. PACENET was created in 1996 to assist older adults whose incomes fall just above PACE limits but who still may need assistance paying for prescription drugs.

Both programs are funded by the Pennsylvania Lottery, the only lottery in the United States to dedicate all of its net revenue to support programs for older residents.

For information about PACE and PACENET, visit the Department of Aging at www.aging.state.pa.us or call, toll-free, 1-800-225-7223.

The Rendell administration is committed to creating a first-rate public education system, protecting our most vulnerable citizens and continuing economic investment to support our communities and businesses.
