What if I Can’t Afford My Epinephrine Medication?

Epinephrine is the first-line treatment for anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction. If you cannot afford the cost of your epinephrine medication, you have options available.

Shop around – at pharmacies and online.

Compare prices at other pharmacies or check prices at GoodRxSinglecareMedical Assistance Tool, Amazon Pharmacy WebMDRx, and Needymeds.

Ask your doctor to prescribe an alternative epinephrine auto-injector that is less costly or a generic version.

Sometimes less costly alternatives are available. Generics have the same active ingredients as brand-name drugs, are equally as safe and effective, and cost less.

Contact the manufacturer for patient assistance programs.

Manufacturers may offer coupons, discounts or rebates.

Contact non-profit organizations that help uninsured and under-insured people

If you are uninsured or under-insured, non-profit organizations and foundations are available to help reduce financial barriers. Organization that help uninsured people include NeedyMeds, RX Assist, RX Hope, Accessia Health, and Partnership for Prescription Assistance. Organizations that help the under-insured include the Healthwell Foundation and Patient Advocate Foundation.

Compare total out-of-pocket cost from one epinephrine auto-injector device to another as sometimes prices will vary.

Depending on whether or not you have insurance that covers your prescription, switching to another device may save you money. Just remember: if you do switch devices, learn how to use the new device since they all operate a bit differently. Read the package instructions and watch the training videos on the manufacturer website to familiarize yourself with proper use of the auto-injector you bring home.

It’s very important to use your medication as prescribed. Be sure to talk with your doctor if you are unable to afford epinephrine – this is a potentially life-saving medication if you are at risk for a severe allergic reaction.
