Senior Health Assistance Program

This program provides assistance to the seniors of Montgomery, Macoupin and Christian Counties with completion of Circuit Breaker and SSA Extra Help applications and Medicare Part D enrollment. 

Circuit Breaker is a state funded program that provides a yearly grant for relief from property tax, mobile home tax, rent or nursing home charges that qualifying seniors and disabled persons pay on their residence and provides discounts on vehicle license plates.  

The Pharmaceutical Assistance program is an optional benefit of the Circuit Breaker that helps pay for certain approved prescription medications.  Medicare Part D and SSA Extra Help are federal programs that provide seniors with pharmaceutical coverage and provide assistance with the high cost of their pharmaceutical needs. 

This program is funded in part by Area Agency on Aging for Lincolnland.
