would be to avoid the allergen at all costs. If it’s a life/death situation then maybe reevaluate spending in other areas in order to afford the EpiPen. In most cases, I think the allergen can be completely avoided, and the money used for an EpiPen can be saved.What changes, if any, would you make to Mylan’s pricing policy? Is there a better way to structure the discounts? I think Mylan needs to strongly consider lowering the price and/or price discriminating. Like I mentioned, I don’t want to get into politics, but I think it’s very crazy that customers are buying overseas, potentially hurting our market for these EpiPens, when they can be priced affordably. The discounts offered seemed to help the customers, especially since the article said that almost 80% of the commercially insured patients who used the savings card received a free EpiPen in 2015. I think it’d also be helpful to offer discounts if you buy more than one. So offering one for $150, two for $250, and three for $300. I’m not sure the shelf life of these EpiPens, but I think they can last a decently long time. Overall, I would suggest Mylan lower the price, price discriminate if the cost and benefit analysis proves it more beneficial, and revisit the discount methods. What is the biggest risk that Bresch faces? I think he biggest risk Bresch is facing is the fact that customers are already furious with the company and the huge prices being charged. Because of this, customers are looking for substitutes whether it’s another company or in another country. I also think other pharmacies could see this company as very vulnerable, and make their own EpiPen, maybe calling it an “Adrenaline Stick”, and selling it for the price it’s worth. Customers who deem this product as a necessity will definitely search for alternatives
when they can’t afford the current supplier. I also think customers should be more cautious around their allergens and maybe not have to use their EpiPen ever.
