Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 231: You Know I Love You When...

...I cross the threshold of a (*shudder*) Wal-xxx (can't even type the name!) in order to fill your post-surgery prescription at the lowest price.

As it turns out, I most likely could have avoided the entire experience, given that Medicare did cover most of the cost, so any other acceptable pharmacy (CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens) would probably have been able to offer a similar price after all.  But the info from the Case Manager to Mom indicated that the dreaded Wal-xxx would be $150 vs. $500 at some other vendor.  In the end, it was actually only $10, thanks to Medicare prescription coverage.

I still feel sort of contaminated...
