Is your epi-pen too expensive?


I came across several great resources for those with allergies that require epinephrine autoinjectors:

General overview of options for obtaining and affording epi-pens

Epipen savings card

GoodRx will give you a cost comparison (check other meds as well) from multiple pharmacies

A non-profit pharmacy (who knew?)

One possible problem is that your prescriber wrote for a med that is not in the formulary for your insurance. Ask your pharmacist to check if a similar option is available in the formulary and request that the prescriber writes for that med instead (some generics can be automatically substituted but not all). Most pharmacists will do this for you when they find the problem.

The bottom line is – don’t accept an outrageously high price. There are options.
