Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program
Senior Gold Prescription Discount Program (Senior Gold) is a State-funded prescription program with a different co-payment structure and income eligibility guidelines than those of PAAD.
You are eligible for Senior Gold 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 2016 is between $26,575 and $36,575 if you are single or between $32,582 and $42,582 if you are married.
All Medicare-eligible Senior Gold beneficiaries are also required to enroll in a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan of their choice. They will be responsible for paying the monthly premium directly to the Medicare Part D plan. They also will be responsible for paying any late enrollment penalty imposed by Medicare for each month they were eligible to enroll in Medicare Part D but did not enroll.

Note: If you are under age 65 and receiving Social Security Disability Benefits on behalf of someone other than yourself, you are NOT eligible for these programs.
