The Knoxville-Knox County Community Action Committee (CAC) established Affordable Medicine Options for Seniors Program (AMOS) as part of the agency’s Office on Aging services.  AMOS helps seniors and disabled individuals apply for available assistance to reduce the cost of their prescription medicines or obtain medications that they cannot otherwise afford.

The Affordable Medicine Options for Seniors (AMOS) is a free service that helps Knoxville and Knox County seniors lower the cost of their medicines. By learning a few basics you can reduce your medicine expenses. Special programs and government assistance are also available.

AMOS can help you apply for various programs including Medicare Part D. Trained volunteer advisors do research, provide information for you, and help complete application forms. Individuals or groups interested in volunteering in AMOS are encouraged to call 524-2786.

AMOS volunteers and staff provide the services below. All services are free. Individual advising is by appointment. Note: AMOS is not a clinic or a pharmacy and does not give out medicines.

  • Information telephone hotline
  • Individual advising
  • Presentations to groups
  • Information mailed to you
  • Training for professionals and community volunteers

AMOS can help you learn about free samples available from your doctor and pharmacist; patient assistance programs; Medicare Part D enrollment, Extra Help, the “doughnut hole,” and dealing with problems with your Part D coverage; veterans’ benefits; medicine discounts and mail order; and more.
