EpiPen manufacturer says it will offer new discounts on the product


WASHINGTON – Mylan, the embattled drug company whose price hikes of an anti-allergy product sparked calls for a government investigation and a congressional hearing has announced plans to broaden discounts offered to consumers on its EpiPen.

The company said Thursday that it will increase the value of a savings coupon offered on an epinephrine auto injector to $300 from $100 and double the eligibility for subsidies that eliminate out-of-pocket costs to uninsured or underinsured patients.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota welcomed the news, but said the country “cannot rely on public outcry as the only solution for high prescription drug prices.”
