Savannah Guthrie, Anchor, NBC News: Days of ever-growing outrage. The drug company that manufactures the EpiPen made a surprise announcement today: Mylan Pharmaceuticals said it will now offer a generic version of that drug at half the price, apparently caving to the intense public pressure. But, at $300, critics say the generic EpiPen is still too costly, three times as much as what it was just a few years ago, and too much for a drug that can mean the difference between life and death. NBC's Tom Costello with our report:
Tom Costello, Reporter, NBC News: The announcement follows weeks of backlash and outrage over price hikes for a drug used most often to save children's lives. Over 10 years, the EpiPen has gone from [$]100 to $600. Today, Mylan Pharmaceuticals said the new generic two-pack will cost half that - $300 - but consumer advocates say it's too little, too late.
Peter Maybarduk, Public Citizen: Mylan is working very hard to avoid plain talk about price. Mylan should cut its price down at least to the 2007 level of $100.
TC: In fact, Mylan's new generic version will still be far more expensive than a typical generic produced by a competitor and usually 90% cheaper. CNBC's Meg Tirrell says Mylan is essentially just changing the label.
Meg Tirrell, Reporter, CNBC: It is an identical product and they are calling it an "authorized generic". In this case, Mylan still has the whole market of the generic and the whole market of the branded.
TC: Last week, CEO Heather Bresch told CNBC, "The company has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on product development."
Heather Bresch, Chief Executive Officer, Mylan Pharmaceuticals: You need the exact right amount of epinephrine in seconds, and that's what our auto-injector does safely. And, it needs to work every time.
TC: But the drug itself, epinephrine, has been around for a hundred years, and costs just $3. Analysts say the plastic auto-injector is also cheap. EpiPens earn the company more than a billion dollars a year. In May, Bresch told Wall Street analysts, "I think you'll see opportunities for us to continue to have that price per pen increase." The concern among consumer advocates [is] that anxious parents may avoid the cheaper identical generic and stick with the more expensive brand name they know. Tom Costello. NBC News, Washington.
