West Virginia AG subpoenas Mylan over EpiPen price hike

West Virginia AG subpoenas Mylan over EpiPen price hike

The single-use, epinephrine auto injector has become a must-have for counteracting the effects of an allergic anaphylactic reaction. Mylan recently bumped the price of the EpiPen to more than $600.

The rising cost has made it hard for many families to afford, prompting a public outcry that has resonated with legislators. The House Oversight Committee is holding a hearing on Wednesday, and Mylan CEO Heather Bresch is scheduled to appear.

Bresch is the Manchins' daughter.

"For Mylan to be successful, they'll have to answer the questions honestly and openly", Maris said.

The Attorney General says Mylan initially agreed to cooperate, but has since failed to respond to the majority of the subpoena. Non-innovator drugs are subject to a much lower 13 percent rebate. Mylan does not now, and has not, faced generic competition for the treatment.

Battlefield 1 Beta Infographic Shows Off Player Numbers and They are Huge
It wouldn't be Battlefield without vehicles, and players dished out some serious carnage with them over the course of the beta. There will be just ten maps to play with while twenty others will be available only if you pay $60 or more.

The Finance Committee Republicans are asking Inspector General Daniel Levinson to examine the federal health agency's oversight of the rebate program.

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has petitioned the court to enforce a subpoena against Mylan as part of an investigation into the skyrocketing price of its EpiPen.

Just two months later, the association announced its "epinephrine policy intiative", which was created to help state boards of education develop health policies that included access to auto-injectors. In 2014, that spending rose to $87.9 million for 211,500 users, Kaiser said.

The court filing documents the price increases as well as "failed attempts to introduce an EpiPen competitor, litigation over intellectual property and dominance Mylan has over the epinephrine auto injector market", according to the release. It has defended the device's high price, saying it spent hundreds of millions of dollars to improve the product and recoups less than half the list price.
