Hi folks,

Don't forget to find out if your insurance company is partnered with an online/mail-order pharmacy as well. My insurance is Blue Cross, and they're partnered with Express Scripts. I know we save a bundle by getting 90-day supplies of our meds as compared to the 30-day supply filled at places like CVS and Walgreen's.

Also, double check your prescriptions before you fill them. Ask a nurse to confirm that the doctor wrote out a prescription for the correct medicine. We spent a over $60 filling a prescription, only to discover that when it arrived, it was the wrong thing. The pharmacy (mail-order) had filled the prescription provided correctly, the doctor had written the prescription incorrectly. Under those circumstances, you're stuck with wrong meds, and need to pay again for the correct ones.

Paul
