Epipens have been in the news lately as schools are rethinking the role of stocking epinephrine and administering it, and we’ve been keeping a close watch on the story. We’ve compiled a great list of resources for you to learn more about EpiPens and your local schools which will appear at the end of this post. In the meantime, we’d like to tell you how you can get an EpiPen 2-Pak with with no co-pay for a limited time!
Here’s how to take advantage of the savings if you have commercial insurance, medicare or the like:
- Make sure your child’s EpiPen prescription is up to date and that you have an available fill. The prescription can be for either the EpiPen (epinephrine) Auto-Injector 2-Pak® or EpiPen Jr® (epinephrine) Auto-Injector 2-Pak.
- Request your special $0 co-pay Epi Savings Card here
- Ensure that your pharmacy is participating in the program, or ask the friendly staff when you call EpiPen to help you find a participating pharmacy in your area.
- You can refill your prescription for up to three paks per perscription, and up to $100 value until the program ends on 12/31/2016
How easy is that?
