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. Has your doctor called in a prescription to your pharmacy already? Once your pharmacy has a prescription on file they should be able to submit a claim and tell you what...

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!
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.

Air travel with food allergies can be complicated. Each airline has different food allergy policies, if they have any at all. Because of this, it is important for people with food allergies to have easy access to epinephrine in case of a severe allergic reaction called anaphylaxis [anna-fih-LACK-sis] while in the air. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) advocates for airlines to stock epinephrine auto-injectors on planes.

If you are one of the millions of people in the U.S. who has a severe allergy and carries an epinephrine auto injector (EAI) you may have wondered if it will still work if it gets left in your car in winter and freezes. Turns out it will still work, according to new research being presented at the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) Annual Scientific Meeting.
Windgap Medical, Inc. announced today that it has a strategic partnership with ALK-Abelló, A/S ("ALK") to commercialize the company's epinephrine autoinjector (EAI) for the treatment of anaphylactic shock.
Thanks for a great webinar! Very informative and helpful. I noticed the babysitting handout shown on one of the last slides wasn't included in your list of links here, I was able to find it on my own, but thought I would point that out in case you want to add it. Thanks!
Thank you so much for this webinar! You answered so many questions for this school nurse, both during your presentation & in the Q & A session! I appreciate the time each of you gave to educate us more about epinephrine & anaphylaxis!
I've heard many others reporting getting a message about the number being disconnected. But others are reporting it works. It may just be that their circuits are overloaded with everyone calling right now.
I called the number listed on the post as well about 45 minutes ago. I received a recorded message and then was asked to leave my name and number, which I did. I'm sure the company is working quickly to figure out how to get all the devices returned.
I received the 'No longer in service' recording as well to the number posted. I pulled the number listed in the AuviQ pamphlet (800-633-1610) and connected without issue. Be warned... I spent 1.25 hours on hold only to be spoon fed the same information we read in the notice above. However, they are sending me a shipping label to return my AuviQs, and told me to include any receipts for the new Epi's in the package for reimbursement. Unfortunately, they just don't have any confirmed...
Thanks for the update! I have one Epipen, Jr., so I am hoping to bring it back and forth to school without any hassle until I can get a refill. I think I will keep both Epipens and Auvi-Qs in the future in case this happens again.
So after reading the info from Sanofi regarding this recall, I am wondering if we are to assume the Auvi-Q's with Expiration dates prior to March 2016 are considered perfectly fine. I also am concerned about replacing all of the sets of Auvi-Q's we need right now, some kept at school, my ex-husbands house, other care providers, and extra on-hand when we are traveling in areas remote from emergency medical care, as well as for those times our primary pack of meds gets misplaced, frozen, or...
Amber B., I think any auvi-q that expires before March and which has a lot number that is not within the numbers listed is perfectly safe and I would use those first in case of an emergency. I have the same concern that there will be a run on Epipens and they may be hard to get. I contacted my pediatrician and allergist for refills as soon as I saw the recall.
Leslie, I hope you are correct about the Auvi-Q's with exp. dates sooner than March being fine to use. Another food allergy organization, Snack Safely, is posting that ALL Auvi-Q's are being recalled. There is no information regarding this question from Sanofi, etc., that I can find. Hopefully we will get more answers today, and there will be ways to ensure all can obtain the epinephrine they need to replace these Auvi-Q's, right away.
