Illinois Cares Rx

Did you apply? Remember, you must continue to file an application for Illinois Cares Rx each year. The time to file is as soon as you get all the financial information to complete your application. This year the application has grown due to the new Medicare Part D process. If you need additional help or assistance, please call The Oasis at 732-6132 for an appointment. All assistance is provided free to anyone.
