I have paid $7 for one. My dr. recently wrote the prescription out for two, (and refillable for a year), it only cost $7 when I picked up the two.
That was for my 13 yr DD. My son's are $7 each.

Our 4 year old son's cost $25 each, but our pharmacist had the doctor call in all that are expiring at once, usually two to three of them so we only pay one co-pay other wise we would have to pay $25 each time we refil a single one.

I knew our insurance wasn't the best, but now I am really disgusted. We pay $55.95 for one Epi-pen Jr. - none of it is covered by insurance.

Hi!
I pay nothing for my epipens! I just assumed that it was $0.00 for everybody.

$10 co-pay but I don't know if my HMO has bumped it up a tier. My prenatal vitamins went from $5 for a 3 month supply to $23 for a 3 month supply.

We have a $5 co-pay for our epi-pens. We receive 2 at a time.
Best wishes,

We paid a whopping $100 for 2 Epi Jrs! Our insurance won't cover injectable drugs, even after a letter from her allergist saying that it was medically necessary to save her life! Gotta love those insurance companies!

The cost of epi-pens is a problem for low income Canadians, who do not have drug benefits. Here's an article that mentions the problem:
