CVS of­fers generic EpiPen

The Hazleton Standard-Speaker - - BUSINESS -

CVS is now sell­ing a ri­val, generic ver­sion of My­lan’s EpiPen at about a sixth of its price, just months af­ter the maker of the life-sav­ing al­lergy treat­ment was evis­cer­ated be­fore Congress be­cause of its soar­ing cost to con­sumers.

The drug­store chain says it will charge $109.99 for a two-pack of the au­tho­rized generic ver­sion of Adrenaclick, a lesser-known treat­ment com­pared to EpiPen, which can cost more than $600.

CVS Health Corp., the na­tion’s se­cond-largest drug­store chain, says it cut the price it charges for the generic ver­sion of Adrenaclick nearly in half.
