Unfortunately, our insurance won't cover auvi-Q.  It is interesting, however, since we pay 90% of our prescriptions.  I did find out through an Auvi-Q rep that pharmacies set their own price.  I had the pharmacist check on the pricing...

Esther!  Most insurances do cover Epipens.  I would recommend calling your insurance and ask them if they cover Epipens.

I got a prescription for Auvi-Q and tried to have it filled but my insurance refused it—they said I had to pay full price ($200+). So for now we are sticking with Epi-Pens.

This is very interesting. Do you know if the generic for Adrenaclick will "overwrite" the brand one? We cannot seem to find its availability at least in FL.
