Free EpiPen with $0 Copay Card
Epinephrine is a necessity for those dealing with life threatening food allergies. However, it can be costly. For a limited time, you can get a free EpiPen*.
2013 marks the 25th anniversary of the EpiPen and Mylan Specialty L.P. is celebrating in numerous ways this year.
One such way is with the “$0 copay offer”, a copay card available to both cash paying and commercially insured patients.
“Mylan has a long-standing dedication to increasing access to epinephrine auto-injectors through innovative access solutions such as the EpiPen4Schools program, and we’re pleased to continue that commitment by introducing our $0 Co-Pay Offer,” said Heather Bresch, CEO of Mylan.
What this means is that with the $0 copay card, you will not need to pay your regular insurance copayment when you pick up your prescription.
What to Do
- Call Mylan Specialty at 1-800-395-3376 and give them your information and they will mail you your $0 copay card.
- Make sure you have a prescription for an EpiPen or EpiPen Jr. from your doctor.
- Give the $0 copay card to the pharmacist with your insurance card or insurance information.
*Certain restrictions apply (see below)

If you suffer from food allergies or have a child that does, you know how difficult traveling can be. Vacations are often planned around food allergies; at least in our house they are. There are just some places that are not safe for a multiple food allergic six year old.
So this winter we are planning our second trip to Walt Disney World. We went in 2006 and they were allergy friendly then, but boy have they stepped up their procedures.
