  • Price of life saving EpiPens jumps dramatically

    CBS News - 12/08/2015

    EpiPens can quickly reverse an allergic reaction. They are an absolute must for allergy patients.

    But the costs of EpiPens have soared drastically. A twin pack has jumped from around $60 to more than $400 over the past 10 years.

    “It’s a bigger issue across most medications in general now,” said Todd Brown, who teaches at the School of Pharmacy at Northeastern University.

    “Pharmaceutical companies have really changed the way they price medications. It used to be related to the impact of the medication,” Brown said. “Now, it’s really changed to essentially how much they can get for a medication.”
