From August through October, the senator sponsored a series of lectures at senior centers in his district covering the changes to New York’s Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Coverage (EPIC) prescription-drug program, now that the 2012-13 state budget restored $30.6 million, that will affect EPIC members starting January 1, 2013. This will reinstate co-payment assistance for almost 300,000 EPIC enrollees, thereby returning the EPIC program to two plans again. Previous EPIC lectures were given in Howard Beach, Maspeth, Ridgewood and Middle Village.
