Volunteers Help Residents Save a Million-plus in Healthcare Costs

In recent months two programs, Prescription Assistance Program and the SHICK (Senior Health Insurance Counselors of Kansas) have moved to the Hope Center at 314 S. Main, Pratt.

The hours for both of these programs are Tuesday 9-12, Wednesday 9-12 and 1-3 and Thursday 9-12. For appointments at other times, please call 933-2165.

Both of these programs have been in service for the people of Pratt since 2001. Between 2001 and 2014 the programs were being worked out of a room in the hospital on the fourth floor at Pratt Regional Medical Center. The volunteers are under the hospital’s direction. Pratt Health Foundation received a grant to obtain computers and software for the programs.

The Prescription Assistance Program helps people who are uninsured and low income and meet the drug manufacturers’ guidelines.

Patients are asked to fill out an application at the office. The first time it may take up to six weeks to obtain the medication. The medication is sent to either the physician’s office or the patient’s home depending on method of delivery.

The Prescription Assistance program has saved the people of the community more than $1.1 million since they started keeping records in 2006 to the current date.

SHICK program has three trained volunteers to help with Plan D selection, supplemental insurance information and information on Medicare.

Open enrollment for Plan D is from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7, 2014. During this time anyone with a Plan D program can come and check to see if they can get a less expensive plan or maybe one that covers all of their prescriptions. Appointments are made to save waiting time for patients.

Last year 258 people were helped with Plan D selection, saving them $85,500.

Anyone with questions regarding Medicare, applying for low income status or needing information when turning 65 may call 933-2165 during the above-mentioned hours.
