Prescription Aid
Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Coverage (EPIC) 
Low and moderate income NYS residents over the age of 65 can qualify for premium free prescription cost-sharing assistance for their Medicare D plans if and/or when they reach their plan’s coverage gap (the donut hole). EPIC requires all members to be enrolled in a Medicare D prescription plan, and only provides assistance in the coverage gap. Some members can qualify for EPIC assistance for their Part D plan premiums.
New York Prescription Saver Card (NYP$)
NYP$ is a free pharmacy discount card that is sponsored by New York State. You can use this card at participating pharmacies to save as much as 60% on generic drugs and 30% on brand name drugs. These savings are provided through the cooperation and support of local pharmacies and drug manufacturers.
