The rising cost of health care and medications is a huge concern for everyone. This past week, the cost of EpiPen, an auto injectable form of epinephrine used to treat severe allergic reactions, has been in the spotlight. A recent article on the controversy in USA Today featured Dr. Tolly Epstein of Allergy Partners of Central Indiana:
In response to these concerns, the manufacturer of EpiPen, Mylan Pharmaceuticals, has announced changes to their coupon and patient assistance programs to make EpiPen more affordable. EpiPen Savings Card now provides up to $300 savings per 2 Pak.
