Assemblyman Fitzpatrick Encourages Seniors to Apply for EPIC

Save Money on Prescription Drugs:

  • Thanks to Assemblyman Fitzpatrick, 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’re 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.

  • Assemblyman Fitzpatrick recommends using EPIC and Medicare Part D together so seniors pay the lowest co-payment possible and receive the prescription drugs they need.

For additional information about EPIC, please call the EPIC Helpline toll-free at (800) 332-3742 or Assemblyman Michael Fitzpatrick at (631) 724-2929.
