The 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 may be eligible for Senior Gold if you meet the following requirements:

  • You are a New Jersey resident;
  • You are age 65 or older or between ages 18 and 64 and receiving Social Security Disability benefits;
  • Your annual income for 2018 is between $27,189 and $37,189 if you are single or between $33,334 and $43,334 if you are married.
  • In addition: 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.
