HHS APPROVES EXPANDING PHARMACY BENEFITS TO SOUTH CAROLINA SENIORS. HHS Secretary Tommy G. Thompson today approved a South Carolina program to provide Medicaid prescription drug benefits to low-income seniors. State officials estimate that as many as 66,000 South Carolina residents may be aided by the new program. "This new program will mean real progress toward providing prescription drug coverage for those South Carolina seniors most in need," Secretary Thompson said. "While we work with Congress to establish a prescription drug benefit for all Medicare beneficiaries, programs like this one can provide immediate relief for seniors." South Carolina is one of the first states to receive federal funding to extend Medicaid prescription drug coverage to seniors under the Pharmacy Plus initiative. HHS today also announced the approval of a similar program in Maryland and previously approved similar programs in Michigan and Wisconsin.
