Yes, my scripts keep going up and up and my insurance? It was $60 a month three years ago, now it is $280.

Just what I needed. Epipens were expensive enough already, even with insurance.

I saw this on the news last night too. ** smh**. [t2620]

Sticking it to those who are ill and have no choice but to pay it is shameful. Prices of medications continue to rise exponentially while SSDI and SSI remain stagnant. [t2427]

I heard on the news that they are now $600 and parents have to buy them because school is starting

With all the stuff that schools require the kids to bring on the first day of school they did not need that extra cost

In all of the years that I have carried one I've never had to use it. But I know that if quit carrying it I will regret it.
Glad this is being investigated, but I have my doubts that it will help.

No someone will get paid off. It used to be kids just had to show up at school but over the years the list of school supplies kept growing and growing.

This is really sad because these kids need these pens so the parents have no choice but to spend the money

All I need is to get stung by a cranky little bee flying out of the flower beds the school has planted along all of the sidewalks. Another reason to like winter better than summer and fall.

I went and picked up a new prescription for the 2-pack of the EpiPen while my insurance was covering the full cost since I've reached my out of pocket. Walgreens told me I was luck the insurance covering it all because it cost $730. At least they don't expire until the beginning of 2018.
