How to get the Generic EpiPen & pay less.
The drug company Mylan recently announced that it would roll out a new, generic version of its branded drug for just $300 per two-pack for commercially-insured patients.
Mylan has expanded it’s patient assistance program, which provides coupons and discounts to patients whose household incomes are four times the federal poverty limit.
The company’s generic version of the EpiPen is set to launch “in several weeks” and will be listed at 50% of the price of the brand name version, which has a retail price of about $600 per two-pack. Aside from the cost, the generic version will be “identical to the brand-name product, including device functionality and drug formulation.”
If you have insurance with a high deductible, you will want to apply for their $300 savings card to access the generic EpiPen. The “My EpiPen Savings Card,” as it’s called on the company’s website, will then “act as cash” at the pharmacy, bringing down the cost of your co-pay or co-insurance for a two-pack of EpiPens to no more than $300. You can use the savings cards to purchase up to 6 two-packs per year.
