Over the last year, there has been significant legislative movement across the country to improve access to epinephrine, which should encourage more schools to take advantage of the EpiPen4Schools program. The goal of the program is to help schools have ready access to epinephrine auto-injectors in case a person experiences a life-threatening allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) at school. People are encouraged to visit www.EpiPen4Schools.com for more information.
"Educating the public about anaphylaxis preparedness and working to improve access to treatment continues to be an important focus at Mylan, which is why we are pleased to be able to extend EpiPen4Schools," said
I also want to remind everyone to use the $0 copay EpiPen discount plan for personal prescriptions (Click here for the link). Our family took full advantage of this program and I do admit, not having the cost of three EpiPen Twin Paks was a huge relief. I know that they are absolutely necessary to have but back to school costs always add up to more than we are expecting. We also shared information with our local pharmacy Robinhood Family Pharmacy to make it even easier for our community to find out about the program. Make sure you share with your pharmacy and schools as well. Although the information is out there, many people still do not know what it is or how to utilize it. Sharing is caring so educate others to empower them.
I also want to personally thank Mylan Specialty for these programs. Budgeting can be tricky with prescriptions, foods, supplies, anything that an allergic child needs. I am grateful that Mylan is caring enough to understand that those who need their EpiPens also need extra help and support sometimes. Sometimes all we need to hear is "I understand, I can help".
