We know that renewing prescriptions for auto-injectors can be a costly venture especially if you have minimal or no prescription coverage. The good news is that pharmaceutical companies are providing incentives to help consumers afford their products.
Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) has published a summary of auto-injector offers available throughout 2014 from two of the major manufacturers. There are restrictions, but in many cases the offers may defray all or much of the cost to the consumer. FARE also lists a less costly generic alternative that might be covered at a lower co-pay/higher reimbursement rate than the name brands.
[UPDATE: There is another option not explicitly mention in this article by FARE. To see it, click here.]
We remind everyone that people with severe food allergies should carry two epinephrine auto-injectors with them everywhere… every time!
