If you’re thinking I’m referring to hard core street drugs, think again. I’m referring to doctor ordered prescriptions for a respiratory infection. It took 24 hours from the time I first contacted my primary care physician until I was actually seen by his PA. Then it took visits to two pharmacies to fill the prescriptions. And that at an out-of-pocket cost of over $100.
I don’t feel bad, however, since the person in front of me had to pay over $400 for his co-pay. If I weren’t feeling so crummy, I’d rail against Big Pharma. Instead, I’m home and in bed and on the road to recovery.
And we’re expecting another ten to 12 inches of snow tonight. So why not stay home and recuperate?
