Cattle Call: Competition Can Lower Drug PricesSee More Videos
The Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a hearing on the rising price of EpiPens. An EpiPen is an epinephrine auto injector to treat severe allergic reactions, some that could even be fatal. Mylan, the company that produces it, controls over 90% of the market. This potentially life-saving drug currently retails for $600 for two but in 2007 it cost only $100. This is a 500% increase for a drug that most patients must buy each year and is not covered by many Obamacare plans. Several generic versions of the EpiPen produced by Mylan’s competitors have failed to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration. The process needs to be streamlined to approve generic brands so that this drug can be made more affordable and accessible to the public.
