NewsChannel 11 has had several requests to repeat this information for seniors looking for a new drug discount. The assistance program from drug maker Eli Lilly allows low-income seniors with no drug insurance to get a month's supply of a prescription drug for just $12, savings that could be really big. Because when you consider a year's supply of Prozac, for example, would retail for about $1,000, this deal means it would cost you only $144 for the year.
Several rival drug makers have already announced similar plans, but this is the first offer for drugs made by Eli Lilly. Seniors can apply for the drug discount card by calling 1-877-RX-LILLY. You'll get your card back in two to four weeks, and pharmacies will start accepting the cards in April.
