I wanted to remind you of changes made to New York State’s Elderly
Pharmaceutical Insurance Coverage (EPIC) program which took effect a few years
ago making thousands more senior citizens eligible for big savings on their
This expansion was the result of the Assembly’s success in increasing
income eligibility, decreasing co-pays and enrollment fees and simplifying the

This brochure explains how the enhanced EPIC plan works. If you have further
questions about eligibility requirements or would like to apply for EPIC, please
contact my office or one of the toll-free hotlines listed in this brochure.
