Mylan ruffled quite a few feathers last summer with its controversial decision to raise the cost of an EpiPen to over $500 for some customers. This important medical device has been the target of many politicians and activist groups in the time since. This morning, CVS announced that it would sell a new two-dose generic version called Adrenaclick for $109.99 (with or without insurance). Impax, maker of this lesser-priced kit, is also offering a coupon that would bring the cost down to just $9.99 (or less) for qualifying patients. You’ll need to print out this page and bring it to your local participating pharmacy to confirm your eligibility. Either way, seeing this crucial medicine drop to more affordable levels is great news.
