I need to get new Epi-pens for my daughter and have been pricing different pharmacies. Are we allowed to discuss what we pay for them? If so, I'd like to know what everyone's average cost is. I do have insurance (thank goodness), but it has a hefty co-pay.

Posted in Kate B.'s thread under Living with PA, I believe the most recent price, in Canada, in Ontario, was $102.00 for an adult Epi-pen.

I pay absolutely nothing for ours. No co-pay either. We have amazing insurance.

E-mom - I saw your post about your coverage. Do you still get receipts that show the price of your prescriptions? My insurance pays 70%, so that extra 30% still adds up when buying more than one epipen at a time!

I pay a $20.00 copay for each one. It could be worse, his Prevacid is $35.00.

We pay out-of-pocket for prescriptions. EpiPens jrs. run about $50 each for us.

Kathy
I think I remember seeing on the receipt that it would cost us $100.00 per pen (if my memory is serving me correctly) if we actually had to pay for them ourselves.
But it's my belief that they jack up the price when insurance covers them.

Our co-payment is $5 for 2 epi's. The insurance picks up about $70 for the both of them.

Why do you need 25 epi-pens? Is this for 1 child?
