Assemblyman McKevitt Encourages Seniors to Apply for EPIC

photos Save Money on Prescription Drugs:
  • The Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Coverage (EPIC) program is the leading program in the nation in helping seniors pay for prescription drugs

  • If you’re a New York state resident 65 or older with an annual income of $35,000 or less if single, and $50,000 or less for couples, and not receiving full Medicaid benefits, you may be eligible for EPIC

  • Enrollees pay an annual fee or meet an annual deductible, then pay only a co-payment for each prescription. Nearly all prescription drugs are covered, both brand name and generic

  • As a part of RESTORE NY, Assemblyman Tom McKevitt proposes the creation of EPIC Extra. Under his plan, every senior with an income less than $60,000 can claim an annual income tax deduction of up to $1,000 to help further reduce the cost of prescription drugs.

For additional information about EPIC, please call the EPIC Helpline toll-free at (800) 332-3742 or Assemblyman Tom McKevitt’s office at (516) 739-5119.
