Breaking this morning, according to reports:
Heather Bresch, Manchin’s daughter, serves as the CEO of Mylan, which acquired EpiPens in 2007. Since then, its cost has increased 400 percent, from $57 to more than $500.
Bresch could be called to Capitol Hill next month to explain the price increase, according to Bloomberg.
Members of Congress have expressed concern over the price increase for the EpiPen, a lifesaving injection for people suffering from a sever allergic reaction.
“I am deeply concerned by this significant price increase for a product that has been on the market for more than three decades, and by Mylan’s failure to publicly explain the recent cost increase, which places a significant burden on parents, schools and other purchasers of the EpiPen,” Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) said Tuesday in a statement.”
