Save Money on EpiPen with Generic Alternatives That Deliver the Same Medicine.

Adrenaclick, also referred to as an “epinephrine auto-injector” is a good alternative.

Employees and family members who use “EpiPens” (allergic reaction, auto-injector syringe filled with an inexpensive drug called epinephrine) may have seen in the news recently that the cost for this device/prescription has increased dramatically – even catching the eyes of congress and regulators.

In the meantime, cost saving alternatives exist to the Epi-Pen, and we encourage you to proactively ask your doctor/caregiver to explore Adrenaclick.  If your physician deems Adrenaclick to be a good alternative for your situation, please ask them to write you a new prescription for an “epinephrine auto-injector.”

Thank you for your efforts to be great consumers in healthcare.  Together, through price transparency and engaged employees, we can help keep healthcare costs lower, saving you, your families and your healthplan money.

Ways to Save on Epinephrine Auto-Injectors:

  • Ask your doctor to write a prescription for an “epinephrine auto-injector” or “generic Adrenaclick.” Most automatically prescribe the name brand EpiPen without asking you. (http://adrenaclick.com).
  • Most pharmacies will not supply a generic alternative if the prescription is written for name brand EpiPen.
  • Call the pharmacy before you go to see if the generic alternative is in stock. If not, it can usually be received within a few days.
  • If the generic Adrenaclick price is higher than you expected, ask about discounts.
  • Try Using OneRx (onerx.com/partnerships/tbc) Compare prices at local pharmacies. Automatically apply coupons and discounts. Automatically apply prescription benefits in your insurance plan.
  • Most pharmacies will redeem OneRx coupons.  Ask your pharmacy about honoring coupons before having the prescription filled.
  • Adrenaclick offers a discount co-pay coupon: (https://sservices.trialcard.com/Coupon/Epinephrine)
  • Pharmacists in more than a dozen states, including California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Vermont, and Washington can fill an EpiPen prescription with generic Adrenaclick—without the customer returning to their physician for a new prescription.

Comparing EpiPen, and Adrenaclick

EpiPen and generic Adrenaclick are not the same device or delivery system, they both contain the drug epinephrine in the same dosage.

All epinephrine auto-injectors use the same medicine, called epinephrine. It is important to note that some devices may have unique features. It is essential that you become familiar with the features on your device so you are prepared in an emergency.

I can't say enough good things about my experience. During my cancer diagnosis, the last thing you want to worry about... is how your Insurance Company is going to actually work for you. I of course, had many questions, which were always answered in "full detail". Amy Towe, our Insurance representative could not have been more helpful. She would check on things for me and always got me an answer promptly. Amy was always available when ever I had a question. She defiantly made the entire process easier. I truly can say enough about her. Her caring was so appreciated throughout my entire journey.Angela Adamsread more
