Ohio Bill to Challenge EpiPen Pricing

Currently pharmacists can not offer generic and cheap alternatives to the “EpiPen” but an Ohio bill could introduced last week by state Rep. Derek Merrin would change that.

The bill would allow doctors to substitute the EpiPen with the patient’s permission, but still allows Doctors to insist on the brand-name product.

Merrin looks at it as a capitalist’s solution or a “free-market” solution to Mylan’s non-competitive pricing after they raised the price of EpiPens by over 400%.
