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.

My son's allergist gave us a voucher/coupon in case our insurance did not cover it - $25.00 for the first 2. Luckily, our insurance covered it, but it is still more expensive than Epi Pens. However, the smaller size (my son is just starting to carry) and the automated instructions are worth the extra expense for us. Ask your allergist if he/she has any coupons to spare!

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.

Hello Francesca, By overwrite, do you mean will brand Adrenaclick production be halted or are you wondering about generic substitution requirements between the two? As far as availability, many pharmacies won't order in a product or keep a product in stock unless they see a need for it (ie: until they have consistent requests for it). If you would like a specific item, most pharmacies are happy to order it in for you, and often they can have it in stock within a day or two of your request.

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 since we pay most of the price anyway, but it was about $39 more. It is sold to the pharmacies as the same price as the Epi-pens. My husband is self imployed - thus the expensive insurance.

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 .

Welcome Esther!! Sorry to hear that you are dealing with food allergies, but we are glad that you found us! You've come to the right place for support. The majority of insurances do cover epinephrine auto-injectors, but it really depends on your insurance policy as to which ones they will cover and how much they will cover.

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