StateWide has been involved with the EPIC program since the start, and while we assist enrollees every day, we also monitor changes to the program. Now we have drafted legislation to correct some problems including reducing the age of eligibility, improving program reports and transparency, restoring the previous application process so enrollees don’t have to disclose resources until contacted by EPIC, and restoring the program’s coverage within limits for the Part D late enrollment penalty. We are pleased to announce that the bill has been introduced by Senate Aging Committee Chair May and Assembly Aging Committee Chair Kim. Contact your state legislators and ask them to join as a co-sponsor of S4603 or A5422.
