You may be eligible for PAAD if you meet the following requirements: A New Jersey resident; 65 years of age or older or 18 years of age or older and receiving Social Security Title II Disability benefits; and Annual income for 2009 of less than $24,432 if single or less than $29,956 if married; and Medicare-eligible PAAD beneficiaries are also required to enroll in a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan. They will NOT have to pay premiums, deductibles, or any out-of-pocket costs beyond the PAAD co-payment of $6 for generic drugs and $7 for brand name drugs as a result of enrolling in specific basic Medicare Part D plans. Medicare Advantage participants must add a prescription benefit to their coverage, and PAAD will contribute up to the regional benchmark amount towards the prescription portion of their total premium.
