Kraft Kraft Protection for Peanuts: Get Reimbursed For Your EpiPen/Epinephrine Injector Out-of-Pocket Costs Protection for Peanuts

get this deal

Kraft Peanut Butter has launched a program to help Canadians offset the cost of epinephrine injectors (like EpiPens). Called Protection for Peanuts, they're aiming to make epinephrine auto-injector cost the same as a jar of peanut butter. (Less than 50% of Canadians with food allergies have easy, affordable access to epinephrine auto-injectors.)

To help Canadians with epinephrine auto-injector costs, they've launched an online reimbursement form. You'll have to provide details like your name, address and the amount you paid out-of-pocket for your epinephrine injectors. You will also need to provide a receipt. There is a limit of one reimbursement submission per person.

You can read more about the program here, and you can access the online reimbursement form here.

    • I don't think the majority of the population is qualified or has experience to play around with needles. Imagine trying to inject your son with a needle you've practiced 4 years ago when he's in a panic and having trouble breathing because you wanted to save money on an injectable and you get an air bubble in his blood ?
      Diabetics who do this at least have had lots of practice. An allergic reaction usually only comes once in a blue moon and you aren't usually home where food are safe and controlled.

      By the way, diabetics have been self-injecting themselves for decades. No one is paying $100 twice daily for the privilege.

      You are right Diabetics have been self administering for decades. Many people would like to move to the dial a dose pens to minimize errors. When there is a withdrawal from a vial USP and NAPRA standards will provide guidance on how long that new prefilled syringe is stable for. Even under the best of circumstances unless you a manufacturer and have the ability to test the integrity of your end product even the longest dating would be no more than about 28 days, likely you would get about 24 hours as an expiry.

      second that, always keep the old ones. they still work even 5 years after they expire, just the efficacy percentage drops, but still safe.

      We buy two per year as school needs one and one for our home. the older ones go to the grandparents and in each of our cars.

    • True but diabetics who do it twice a day usually are in a controlled environment and quickly become an expert on injecting. This is for emergencies used by people who have probably never used a needles like small kids. Its an emergency situation. You get scared. You may need a strangers help. It may be a child. Very different use case.
      Exactly. Depends on the intended user.

    • How common is it to become tolerant once allergic? I know a kid who is allergic to all nutes, coconuts, and couple other things! Really wish they could get better
      I cannot answer the question because I don't really know but I know it varies. In our case (cashew + pistachio) it was low chances but there is factors that help. There is some desensiblisation program but, again, I don't know any details.

    • Do you also have pistachio? Are you allergic or just intolerant?
      My daughter had both and we are very lucky, she's not anymore (we're in the process of reintroduction). Seriously big party. We went at Ciel! to celebrate.

    • You can get epinephrine in a regular vial with a syringe for like $10, and if you're really confident in your ability to prepare the syringe in an emergency, it can be a good way to save money. It's the auto-injector that costs so much, due to patent protection. But unless you're a battlefield medic, it's absolutely necessary.

    • Thankfully, I'm not allergic to peanuts (Oh Henry! has always been my favourite chocolate bar) but I am asthmatic and severely allergic to cashews, an allergy I discovered after being forced to try them. I never bothered with an EpiPen because I felt that I was able to avoid cashews just fine on my own, until one day at work when I ate some peanut caramel popcorn that turned out to be ~gourmet~ cashew caramel popcorn.

      Scrambling to the washroom to induce vomiting was one of the scariest moments of my life. I got an EpiPen the next day. I'm lucky that my insurance covers 90%.

      If it is just $75,000 for all of Canada, and pens are avg $100 each..... that's only 750 total.

      You don't wanna fool around with injectables. Yes the potency will degrade a bit over time, but the bigger concern is sterility. It's hard to absolutely guarantee anything will remain sterile over several years, even with the preservatives they add.

      That said, unless you manage to snag a vein, any infection would likely be limited to the immediate area, giving you a nasty boil or something but not septic shock like if it was IV.

    • It's really difficult when it comes to anything medical. As much as we want to eliminate plastic waste, it's nearly impossible. Imagine reusing an IV bag that wasn't sterilized properly and you had an allergic reaction to a solution that was previously within?

      What you can do, is bring all your expired medication to the drug store so they can dispose of it properly and safely. Most people toss it in the trash which is the worst thing because that ends up in the water supply.

      [quote=jamesr32 post_id=35313735 time=1637773856 user_id=1430354]
      I always wondered why can't there be a trade in system where you give back the expired one for some money. The injector itself doesn't break automatically! Only the drug expires. It'll avoid plastic waste as well.

      Or maybe an exchange program between people amd ambulance services where they collect your near expired products for use, as they'd be using it more often.

      Alas, i live in some hopeful world of exchanges...

    • I'm going to call you out on this one as well. You have no idea how difficult it is to prevent cross-contamination in a manufacturing plant, especially given how sensitive some peanut allergies can be. In order to prevent cross-contamination, they would need to build a brand new plant at [u]minimum[/u]. That's like saying, buying your child with a peanut allergy a brand new house that only they live in.

      Go be a Karen somewhere else instead of being an idiot here. Good on the OP for this and much appreciated.
