Illinois Cares Rx Increases Income Guidelines for Drug Coverage

Illinois Cares Rx Increases Income Guidelines for Drug Coverage
SPRINGFIELD…Over the years, some Illinois Cares Rx beneficiaries have lost eligibility for drug coverage because of the annual Social Security cost of living adjustments. The Department of Healthcare and Family Services has recently changed the eligibility requirements. For those who have applied for Illinois Cares Rx and are on record as being denied over income, the application will be reprocessed. If you haven’t applied for Illinois Cares Rx drug coverage this year because your income was over the limit, apply now!
 
The new income limit increase is as follows:
 
Illinois Cares Rx Basic
$22,793 for a household of one, $30,594 for a household of two, $38,393 for a household of three
 
Illinois Cares Rx Plus
$21,936 for a household of one, $29,412 for a household of two
 
The income limit increase impacts Illinois Cares Rx drug coverage only. The income limits for the Circuit Breaker property tax grant and license plate discount have not changed.
 
Individuals may apply online at www.cbrx.il.gov or contact the SeniorHelpline at 1-800-252-8966 or 1-888-206-1327 (TTY) to request a paper application.
