Pharmaceutical Assistance for the Aged & Disabled
PAAD provides coverage for prescribed legend drugs, insulin and insulin supplies.
The PAAD co-payment will be $5 for each PAAD covered generic drug prescription and $7 for each PAAD covered brand name drug prescription. PAAD beneficiaries may pay less for generic drugs if their Medicare prescription drug plan charges them less than the $5 PAAD co-payment for generics.
PAAD does not pay for diabetic testing supplies (e.g., test strips and lancets). If PAAD beneficiaries have health insurance coverage, such as Medicare Part B that pays for diabetic testing supplies a pharmacy must bill that insurance plan. PAAD will not pay for them.

A PAAD beneficiary must be 65 years of age or older, or at least 18 years of age and receiving Social Security Title II Disability benefits; and
