After a visit to the ER, I'll be buying Epipens (went up 500% since 09)
Second allergic reaction in 2 weeks. Paid for the first one on 12-31-16. It is a covered item and all our deductibles for the year had been met. Happy New Year!
In 2017 it will no longer be monopoly. No word yet on if that will lower the price.

CINCINNATI — The maker of the EpiPen that came under fire for boosting the price of the lifesaving allergy medication sky high may have quieted the controversy by introducing a generic version, but now faces a raft of lawsuits.
Several proposed class-action cases against drugmaker Mylan involving EpiPens have been brought in federal courts around the country, including two in Kansas and two in northern California.
One was filed by a Cincinnati attorney against Mylan after it raised the price of its EpiPen injectors by 500% since 2009.
Since the lawsuit was filed Sept. 6, the case has been transferred to federal court, and there are now about 100 people who have signed on to the proposed class-action case.
