Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder restores
EPIC funding for seniors
Assemblyman Goldfeder reduces co-pays for 27,000 Queens seniors
The 2012-13 budget restores $30.6 million for EPIC co-payment assistance, so eligible seniors
can return to paying no more than a $20 co-payment for their prescription. This measure is part
of the Medicare Part D plan and will go into effect Jan. 1, 2013.
So many seniors were left paying full price for prescriptions. The restoration of EPIC funding
makes their medication affordable again. Assemblyman Goldfeder
