My husband (who is the health care provider in the house) started a new job last week and isn't able to go on their insurance plan until 90 days are up. Typical. Not a complaint, just saying. I have only one medication that I take on a regular basis, he... many. Since his last day at his old job was on the 15th, I was lucky enough to be able to refill my prescription on the 14th for a month's worth of pills. He was able to get his at a 3 month supply (mail) right before it stopped. He is all set, but I, however, will need to figure out how to get two more month's supply to me. I had a doctor's appt a week after he left his job, and I explained my situation to the dr. and asked what I should do for the last two months. He said he'd write me a 3 month perscription, ... then he said," Call around. You should be able to get this for as little as $4-$6 for a 30 day supply." ....really?!..... I've never 'called around' before. I always have the same small family run pharmacy fill all my prescriptions, since I like them to know all the meds I'm taking at any given time.
So, today, at work, I decided to 'call around'. Here's what I discovered.
Guess where I went on the way home from work?.... oh, yeah.
