I'm sure that most of you here in the states are familiar with the 4 dollar generic prescription drug plans, as the Evil Big Box Store(tm) has it in all of their pharmacies. I happen to use Giant Eagle when I fill those prescriptions, as I can also get fuel perks. At this time, I can save 60 cents a gallon.
Yesterday I had a doctor's appointment, he was concerned about my blood pressure, so he doubled up one of my prescriptions. This one happened to be on the 4 dollar list, which also allows you to get 90 days worth for 10 dollars. He faxed it over to the Giant Eagle, and since I had enough to take the double dosage, I decided to wait until today to pick it up.
When I got there, I was pleasantly surprised, or at least I thought. The cost of my prescription was $2.11. I picked up a few grocery items, checked out and went to my car. I then checked my prescription and saw that I paid $2.11 for THREE TABLETS. Luckily for me, my doctor's office was just around the corner(literally). I went in and showed the medical assistant what my money got me. By the way, we were both laughing. What the doctor had put in as a three month supply, they translated into three tablets. the prescription was rewritten right and sent to another Giant Eagle, one closer to my home and all is as well as possible at this time. Cliff Note: Had I taken better care of myself throughout the years, I might not be writing this post.
