Kaleo (who make Auvi-Q) are no saints as well. Their autoinjector is also expensive as hell, and probably didn't get as much attention because they're a smaller company and didn't raise the prices while having a contract to have autoinjectors sold to schools. Good to see that they have made generics, but $600 for 1 of their injectors is insane.

I don't think anyone actually pays that much? If you have insurance, you pay $25 as I did. If you don't and you're poor, you get them for free (like I did when I first started using it).

It's not about if you have good insurance. If you have insurance, you can buy it for 25$

Edit: I realize having insurance is expensive but with Obamacare, it's cheaper to have insurance than not have it
