Historic Expansion of EPIC Program Passed for Seniors

I am pleased to report that my colleagues and I passed the expansion of EPIC eligibility will ease the financial burden for tens of thousands of seniors across New York who rely on costly prescription drugs. As drug costs have risen, they have become the largest single source of out of pocket healthcare costs for seniors. The bill, S.1839, will increase income eligibility levels in the EPIC program from $35,000 to $50,000 for unmarried residents and from $50,000 to $75,000 for married residents
