Why Mylan’s ‘savings card’ won’t make EpiPen cheaper for all patients

After being blasted for price hikes on its lifesaving EpiPen allergy injections, the drugmaker Mylan announced Thursday that it will expand access to the product — not by lowering the price, but by creating a savings card that will cover up to $300 of its EpiPen 2-Pak.

The list price of the drug is $609 for a two-pack of the injectors, up from less than $100 in 2007, according to data from Truven Health Analytics.
