NY State Budget and Senior Drug Plan expansion

The Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Coverage (EPIC) program is a New York State program for seniors administered by the Department of Health. It helps income-eligible seniors aged 65 and older to supplement their out-of-pocket Medicare Part D drug plan costs.

The New York State 2014-15 budget included the expansion of the program to cover the prescription needs of more seniors.  Currently, the eligibility requirements for EPIC are capped at $35,000 for an individual and $50,000 for a married couple. These threshold will rise to $75,00 for an individual and $100,000 for married enrollees.

With these new thresholds you or someone you know may now be eligible for EPIC help.  Until the Department of Health prints new forms,  Download the EPIC Application and call me at (518) 346-2115 for assistance with submitting your request.
