If you or a family member has life threatening allergies, CVS is now offering the EpiPen Alternative for only $109.99 – the lowest cash price on the market. Even better, if you have insurance, you may be able to save an extra $100 off when you bring this co-pay / co-insurance Savings Card to the pharmacy.

If you qualify, you can apply this Savings Card up to three times, with a maximum of $100 per two-pack or $300 off the out of pocket cost.

If your pharmacist is unable to provide the savings at the time you fill your prescription, follow the instructions on this form to submit for a mail-in rebate. If you are eligible, you will receive a check in the mail within 14 business days. Be sure to save your original pharmacy receipt (cash register receipt will NOT be valid) since it is required to be mailed with the rebate form.

EpiPen Savings Card

As another option, you can save up to $300 on your EpiPen Auto-Injector prescription with this EpiPen Savings Card. With this Card, you may be eligible to save on up to three EpiPen 2-Pak or EpiPen Jr 2-Pak cartons each time you fill your prescription, now through December 31st. It even allows you to reuse your $0 co-pay card for multiple purchases. Head here for more details.

    Epi pen brand has a saving card too. Ours was going to be $35 after insurance but was free with the card!

    • CW

      Yes! I haven’t paid for a brand EpiPen in 3 yrs.

    • riss

      Yes, if you have a private insurance, not state or federally-funded medical insurance, just google free epipen, and print the card. Zero co-pay. Haven’t paid a penny for a few years now.

  2. CW

    Please be aware that by law the generic can carry as low as 80% of the effective ingredient. So if you normally carry one brand Epi Pen, you may need to carry 2 generic pens.

    • WF

      It must have the same amount of the active ingredient and demonstrate 80-125% bioequivalence of the brand reference product. So, it could actually have more.

      I am a pharmacist and I cannot stress enough how completely WRONG this comment is by CW. For the love of God, this misinformation is the bane of my existence as well as other pharmacists.

      Courtesy of the FDA, section 1.2 is everything needed to disprove this stupidity perpetuated by CW: http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DevelopmentApprovalProcess/ucm079068.htm

        I’m a student pharmacist and it’s crazy how much misinformation is out there. My first semester really honed in on brand vs generic and the required bioequivalence. I’m now taking a class about OTC products and realize I haven’t always been taking the right medications for my headaches, congestion, etc. That’s why it’s our job to help the public by correcting misinformation and translating all this medical jargon!

      • Sarah

        We have no insurance and can’t get the epipen jr. Any cheaper than $600-$800 so I’ve been almost forced to buy from Canada where I can get it for $160. I’m guessing it’s the same strength right?

        • Amanda C

          Sarah, call a few pharmacies in your area for price quotes. I work at an independent and we are considerably less on a ton of drugs than the chains in town…. not necessarily on a super expensive drug like this but it pays to call to a few different places including at least one chain and one independent!

    We lost our insurance three years ago and then I was diagnosed with a chronic illness. The monthly cost was $200 for one generic! I was devastated! But then I downloaded goodrx and have saved soooo much! Mine script is $20/ month with it and even the random scripts for kids have been much cheaper! We also use direct patient labs for blood work. Ask for our scripts to be written for three months worth of medication (it comes out to cheaper/ month). I’ve also found over the counter herbal substitutes like oregano oil or olive leaf extract to help fend off minor issues. 🙂

  4. Edy

    Is goodrx like a insurance that pays for medicines when we don’t have insurance? Just to
    Pay for prescriptions ?

    • Tory

      No, it’s not insurance, just a free discount service. I use the app, but they also have a website. My pharmacist friend for major retailer said that the store sometimes looses money when accepting goodrx, but they take it anyway. There is also a place to compare prices on the site.

  5. natz

    GoodRx is wonderful. My daughter’s prescription through insurance was going to be $450.00 for 3 months. GoodRx cost was $45.00 for 3 months.

    • Cg

      Does it work at cvs? And what if I have prescription coverage? Can someone give me a general rundown please. I read some reviews in the App Store but kind of contracting . TIA!

      • Cg

        Contradictory sorry autocorrect lol

    • Mary

      I second the good RX recommendation too. We have the high deductable insurance plan and my doctor put me on a prescription that was going to cost us around $2,000 a month. Good RX was able to get the price down to $800 a month which was still expensive, but a lot better than what we would have been paying.

  6. Charlene

    The generic Epi-Pens are 100% Epinephrine. Just like the name brand!!!!!!!They are absolutely not a lower dose!!!!

  7. Emily

    Please do not buy the name brand. They are a horrible price-gouging coming. Demand the generic.

    • Edie

      Mylan makes both the brand name Epi-Pen and the authorized generic.

    My son is diabetic and with new insurance plan I have to pay $1200 out of pocket a month until I reach the deductible. That is crazy because that I almost how much I make in a month. All this companies make big money of poor people that their life depends on the medication.

    • Mom24girls+1boy

      I can totally relate to you. My daughter has Type 1 diabetes. My husband’s company only offers a high deductible insurance plan, so we pay pretty much full price on insulin, testing strips and supplies until we meet that $7500 deductible! It is a crime that these companies are charging for life sustaining meds that the original developers made to help people. The pharmaceutical companies say that they have “improved” the medication but often times it is a tweak here or there (sometimes just changes to the packaging) yet the price goes through the roof!

      • Edie

        Don’t know if you will see this as this post is a couple months old, but for brand name products such as insulin, if you use the pens over the vials, there are manufacturer coupons for almost every single brand you can use on top of your commercial insurance that can bring your out of pocket cost down while still putting money down towards meeting your deductible. Take Lantus Solostar for example. They currently have a manufacturer coupon available that will make your copay $10 whether your insurance covers them or not. If you are on any brand name drugs and have commercial insurance, always make sure to Google “*insert drug name here* copay card” or just go to the manufacturer’s website and take a peek. I try to look up the coupons for my patients when I have time but there is the occasional one I miss, so don’t be afraid to look into it yourself or ask! 🙂

  9. Tiffany Smalls

    Unless you want the money to go towards your deductible the coupon above will be 9.99 and if you use your insurance in might be 19.99. Weird, I know. Wrack up while you can and make sure your Pharmacy submits the correct day supply: 1 pen = 1 day

    • Edie

      Nope, one package is a one day supply. The pens are not meant to be split up in case another dose is needed while en route to the hospital.

    What a scam…
