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...

Hi Esther - I know that Auvi-Q and Epi Pen both have discounts at the moment to cover the cost of a prescription.  You can see the link Lynda posted about regarding the Auvi-Q.  And here is the info on EpiPen .

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.

This new design will be much easier for men to carry in their pockets.  Many men and teens don't want to carry the current epi devices because they're too bulky to fit in their pockets.  I hope this new design will increase compliance and...

The size of this device will actually create more issues than solve.  Its small size will resemble many other small devices or items one may carry in a purse or pocket. (smart phones etc.)  When it is a panic situation and you are...

I'm so excited for this new size! I've signed up to be notified when it becomes available. Since DS also carries his spacer/inhaler, having a smaller epi device will make a huge difference in the emergency pack he can wear.
