Together Rx Access(R) Program Expands Eligibility Criteria, Responds to Challenging Economic Times
Date:3/19/2009

ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Together Rx Access(R), a prescription savings program sponsored by many of the nation's leading pharmaceutical companies, announced today that it has expanded the Program's eligibility income levels to help even more uninsured individuals and families save on the medicines they need to stay healthy and to manage chronic conditions. Under the new income levels, nearly 90 percent of uninsured Americans will now be eligible for the Together Rx Access Program.

"Millions of individuals around the country have been impacted by job reductions, salary cuts, or the loss of health benefits, specifically prescription coverage, adding to the already soaring uninsured population in the United States," said Roba Whiteley, executive director of Together Rx Access. "By expanding the Program's income levels, the Together Rx Access member companies are responding to the needs of hardworking Americans during these challenging times."

The enhanced income levels for which individuals are eligible for the Together Rx Access Program are now:

  • $45,000 for a single person (formerly $30,000)
  • $60,000 for a family of two (formerly $40,000)
  • $75,000 for a family of three (formerly $50,000)
  • $90,000 for a family of four (formerly $60,000)
  • $105,000 for a family of five (formerly $70,000)

Over the past 12 months, the unemployment rate in the United States has risen by 3.3 percent(1), which by some estimates, may result in more than three million additional Americans without health insurance(2). Results from a recent Kaiser Family Foundation survey, conducted in February 2009, showed that 53 percent of American households have cut back on healthcare due to cost concerns in the past 12 months.
