Answers on Aging: Pharmacy Benefits


In collaboration with Walgreens, n4a is implementing a national initiative to provide Medicare Counselors and consumers with educational materials, tools and other resources to help older adults and people with disabilities maximize their Medicare pharmacy benefits.
The goals for this initiative are to:
  1. Raise awareness about the importance of maximizing pharmacy benefits as one of the strategies to address low medication adherence rates and to help older adults and people with disabilities maintain their health; and
  2. Fill a gap in resources available to help older adults and their caregivers choose and use their pharmacy benefits wisely.
Project objectives will be accomplished through the creation and distribution of Medicare Counselor and consumer-facing materials, guides and educational resources. In addition, a Pharmacy Benefits Week (PBW) toolkit is available to help local Area Agencies on Aging and Title VI aging programs host public events on strategies that can help Medicare beneficiaries maximize their pharmacy benefits.
