You shouldn’t have to spend so much money to get a life-saving device like this; here’s how to bring that number down a bit.
And then this is something where buying the generic version can create lots of cost savings (although, you have to directly request the generic)
CVS will charge $109.99 for a two-pack of the generic version of Adrenaclick, a lesser-known treatment than EpiPen, which can cost more than $600, the Associated Press reported. The products are auto-injectors that contain the hormone epinephrine and provide emergency treatment for potentially deadly allergic reactions to foods such as nuts and eggs and to insect bites and stings.The drug store chain said it cut the price of the generic version of Adrenaclick nearly in half and that the lower price is available in all its stores. The new price applies to both insured patients and those who pay cash without coverage, and is what customers will pay at the pharmacy counter, the AP reported.
$50 each is still entirely too expensive, but it’s better than nothing. Readers, take note!
