Epipen Prices Increase Drastically With Calls For Federal Probe

How does the cost of a lifesaving drug go from $56 to $317? That’s the price some people are paying for epipens, the drug that reverses the effects of severe allergic reactions. The CEO of Mylan, the company that makes the epipen, is being accused of price-gouging. As epipen prices soared, CEO Heather Bresch’s salary went from $2.4 million to $18.9 million over eight years.
