EPIC (Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Coverage)

EPIC is a New York State sponsored prescription plan for New York State residents age 65+ with incomes in the previous year no greater than $75,000 (single) or $100,000 (married couple) who would like help paying for their Part D premium and prescriptions. Having EPIC also provides for one Special Enrollment annually in order to change a Part D plan. Over 300,000 seniors already belong and are saving, on average, over 80% on the cost of their medicines.
