Eli Lilly announced plans Tuesday to offer less expensive versions of two of the company’s insulin pens, eight months after introducing a reduced-price liquid insulin. 

State and federal lawmakers have criticized drug companies for a jump in insulin costs in recent years.

The company plans to sell discounted versions of Humalog Mix75/25 KwikPen and Junior Humalog Junior KwikPen for 50 percent less than current list price. Both pens will be available by mid-April. The insulin will carry a list price around $265 for a package of five.

Vice President of Connected Care and Insulin Tony Ezell says the company launched the campaign now to reach people who will face high-deductible insurance payments when plans reset next month.
