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.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who has been aggressively courting African-American voters, accused Hillary Clinton of being a "bigot" who panders to minorities.

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.
A strong aftershock with a preliminary magnitude of 4.3 has hit an earthquake-struck area in Italy Thursday, causing more damage to buildings in a town nearly destroyed a day earlier.

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.
The Orlando hospitals that treated dozens of people injured in the Pulse nightclub massacre are not billing survivors for out-of-pocket medical expenses.
News outlets report Orlando Regional Medical Center, which treated most of the survivors of the June 12 attack, announced Wednesday that it would seek payment from other resources such as insurance plans and a victims' fund established by city officials.
Florida Hospital, which treated 12 survivors, says it would not bill for any of its services.
The lone, balky elevator that takes visitors to the top of the 555-foot Washington Monument needs a major renovation that will require closing the landmark for nine months, officials said Wednesday.
The elevator has broken down frequently over the past two years, roughly since the monument reopened following the August 2011 earthquake that did major damage to the structure.
The monument needed $15 million in repairs and was closed for nearly three years, but the National Park Service (NPS) did not renovate the elevator during that time.
