Illinois Cares Rx Plus
Illinois Cares Rx Plus covers the same prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs prescribed by a doctor that are covered for persons receiving medical benefits.
In addition, for Medicare recipients enrolled in a coordinating plan, Illinois Care Rx pays the monthly Part D premium (or whatever part of the premium is not covered by Extra Help), and the deductible, if any.
Illinois Cares Rx Basic
Persons who do not receive Medicare may apply for Illinois Cares Rx Basic. Illinois Cares Rx Basic covers prescription drugs for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, arthritis, cancer, diabetes, glaucoma, heart disease and its related conditions, lung disease and smoking-related illnesses, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis and Parkinson's disease.
