The coupons will cover up to $300 “for patients in health plans who face higher out-of-pocket costs” for the EpiPen Auto-Injectors. Also, the company said a family of four with income up to $97,200 will NOT pay out of pocket.

BTW: The average wholesale price of EpiPen has increased by 500% since 2009.   The list price of an EpiPen is currently $600.  http://goo.gl/hXdhqX

Starting back to school can be stressful  and a little anxious…

How about this encouraging verse…

 

“So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 41:10
