A SOLUTION FOR
FREQUENT TRIPS TO YOUR PHARMACY
We previously wrote about how to save on the cost of prescriptions, but that post was just about money. For many, the time it takes to visit a pharmacy for refills every month can be a huge waste of time.
For reasons known only to them, insurance companies will only pay for 30 pills at a time at local pharmacies and 90 pills by mail order. For those who are on long term medications that don’t change often — thyroid, blood pressure and cholesterol come to mind — paying cash for a year’s worth of medication can save enough time to make it a worthwhile strategy. And for those with more than one home we often prescribe enough to stock each place, eliminating the hassle of refilling a forgotten prescription.
