“… a huge thanks for cluing us in to the EPIC ..program.”
“…we now estimate yearly savings to be $7,000+/-”
“…we’d never heard of this program until one of your newsletter emails..”
When Mary became eligible for Medicare I helped her enroll in the Medicare Supplement Plan G she selected as secondary to Original Medicare.
Then we searched and found a Part D prescription drug plan that included her specialty medication in its covered drugs, known as the “formulary.” Although the specialty drug was categorized at the highest cost sharing, tier 5, its being included saved the added step and hassle of requesting a “formulary exception.”
John and Mary’s joint income is below $100,000 so she became eligible for the New York State EPIC program.
As John’s note to me states, once Mary’s pharmacy cumulative copayments reached her EPIC 2020 deductible level, that tier 5 specialty drug copay was reduced to $20. John estimates this saves the household about $7,000 annually.
Of course I was thrilled to hear my mention of EPIC helped John and Mary like this. I encourage every client to confirm your New York EPIC eligibility and enroll. I have included the EPIC enrollment form below and am available to assist with any eligibility or enrollment process questions.
