Mylan, now in the crosshairs over severe price hikes for its EpiPen, says it will expand programs that lower out-of-pocket costs by as much as half.
Mylan N.V. said Thursday that the patient cost will be reduced through a savings card that will cover up to $300 for an EpiPen 2-Pak.
The company said it's also doubling eligibility for its patient assistance program, which it said will get rid of out-of-pocket costs for uninsured and underinsured patients and families.
Patients will also be able to order the injected emergency medicine for severe allergic reactions directly from the company, to help lower costs.

Aftershocks in central Italy rattled residents and rescue workers alike Thursday, as crews worked to find more earthquake survivors and the country anguished over its repeated failure to protect ancient towns and modern cities from seismic catastrophes.
A day after a shallow quake killed 250 people and leveled three small towns, a 4.3 magnitude aftershock sent up plumes of thick gray dust in the hard-hit town of Amatrice. The aftershock crumbled already cracked buildings, prompted authorities to close roads and sent another person to the hospital.
It was only one of the more than 470 temblors that have followed Wednesday's pre-dawn quake.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who has been aggressively courting African-American voters, accused Hillary Clinton of being a "bigot" who panders to minorities. The remark appeared to catch many in the predominately white crowd by surprise, particularly a woman standing on stage behind Trump. Video of the woman grimacing at the comment as her eyes widened in shock was shared on social media.
France's highest administrative authority is studying whether local bans on full-body burkini swimsuits are legal, amid growing concerns in the country and abroad about police forcing Muslim women to disrobe.
Images of uniformed police appearing to require a woman to take off her tunic, and media accounts of similar incidents, have elicited shock and anger online this week.
Some fear that burkini bans in several French towns are worsening religious tensions. The bans, based on a strict application of secularism policies, have exposed division within the government.

Mohamed Amiin Ali Roble, 20, who in 2007 survived a bridge collapse in Minneapolis that killed over a dozen people, has been charged with conspiring to support ISIS, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.
Roble is accused of traveling to Syria and joining the terror group after he turned 18. The FBI says he used a $91,000 settlement he received from the bridge collapse to fund the group. Authorities believe he lives in Syria.
Roble was just weeks shy of his 11th birthday in 2007 when the school bus he was riding in was caught on a Mississippi River bridge in Minneapolis that collapsed. Thirteen people were killed and 145 people were injured, including Roble.

It’s a long trip from New York City to Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska — about 4,500 miles. But Kenai Fjords and four other national parks just got a little closer thanks to a series of virtual reality tours released by Google for the centennial of the national park system.
Google has created 360-degree guided tours of five parks to celebrate the birthday of the National Park Service, which was established 100 years ago Thursday. The service was founded on Aug. 25, 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson with the goal of preserving the nation’s natural and historic wonders for future generations.
In addition to Kenai Fjords, viewers can marvel at Hawaii’s volcanoes, descend into the Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico, traverse Bryce Canyon in Utah, and dive into the waters of the Dry Tortugas in Florida.
