Medication Assistance Program
If you do not have prescription drug coverage, we may be able to help. With your doctor's assistance, we can aid with enrollment in free or low-cost prescription drug programs. Even those who are prescribed temporary medications and have no other ways of obtaining them - we should be able to help reduce those costs in some way. Medications should be accessible to everyone!
Ramps & Housing Modifications
For those who qualify, we can assist in building ramps and/or making home modifications for a safe and accessible home environment. We have helped build FREE ramps, steps, railings, and additional accessibility/mobility modifications for hundreds of our consumers thanks to various grant funding and donations that we are VERY gracious to receive! To find out if you qualify for a ramp or other housing modification, call us at 573-756-4314 ext. 121.
Assistance With Medicaid Eligibility
If you think your income makes you ineligible for Medicaid, call today and ask to speak to our Medicaid Specialist. Medicaid eligibility and rules vary, so you may qualify! Our specialist can help with Miller Trust (also known as Qualified Income Trust), HCB Waiver, Division of Assets, and more! There are many ins and outs of the Medicaid application process that we can help you navigate. Plus, if your income is too high, you may be able to qualify by paying a monthly spend down.
