Montana's Big Sky Rx Program, or BSRx for short, is a state pharmaceutical assistance program that helps seniors by providing financial assistance to cover the costs of their Medicare Part D premiums. Depending on the individual and the Medicare Part D plan in which they are enrolled, the financial assistance could pay as much as the entire monthly premium. This program is managed by the MT Department of Public Health and Human Services and is funded by a tax on tobacco products.
To be eligible for this program, seniors must meet the requirements that follow. Note that one’s assets, although requested on the application, are not considered an eligibility factor.
Big Sky Rx does not have application fees or enrollment charges. There are no costs associated with participation in this program. As a benefit, in 2019, the Big Sky Rx provides cash payments up to $34.00 each month to be put towards the cost of Medicare Part D premiums.
This program is open to residents statewide and there are no specific enrollment periods throughout the year. To learn more, visit the Big Sky Rx website or call their toll free number at 866-369-1233. One can also download a PDF Application for Big Sky Rx.
