Kmart Pharmacy lowers price of Adrenaclick epinephrine auto-injector


HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. — Kmart Pharmacy is looking to make epinephrine auto-injectors more affordable for its patients. The company on Tuesday announced that it would be lowering the price on the generic version of Adrenaclick epinephrine auto-injector) for as low as $0 for some commercially insured patients, and $199.99 per two-pack for patients paying in cash.

"When the cost of epinephrine skyrocketed, Kmart understood the critical impact it would have on our customers and worked to make access affordable," Kmart Pharmacy director of compliance and administration Jennifer Speares Lehman said. "As part of our 'Care Beyond the Counter' approach, Kmart Pharmacy more deeply connects with our customers on issues that matter to them most. Affordable epinephrine auto-injectors is definitely one of them."

The new price is achieved through Kmart’s lowered pricing and a manufacturers coupon from Impax Laboratories’ Lineage Therapeutics subsidiary.

Kmart noted that in a 2013 survey, 60% of people who reported experiencing anaphylaxis two or more times didn’t have an auto-injector available.
