Small independents have a reputation to keep up especially if they have been in business for any length of time.

Thanks all. Yes, the mom-and-pop pharmacy has the legit med. My visit to Sam's today was a joke. Their price was $279.00. Ha! Ha!

Went to Needy Meds and learned that my drug is not part of their program. Thanks for the lead.

And the beat goes on.....

Isn't it ridiculous that you have to do this? I'm just shaking my head.

Yes, Dawg, it is totally ridiculous. Just because I became 65-years-old.

I'm just thankful that I am healthy and don't have to rely on many, many medications to maintain my quality of life.

It's beginning to pxxx me off, if you understand my French. I've gone beyond the head-scratching stage, now I'm getting angry.

I was so grateful when Shrek turned 65 and I could take him off my work insurance (an extra $350 a month) and got Medicare...however, with the "donut hole" and out of pocket expenses of his Parts B & D, I'm really not sure I am saving any money.

I'm glad I live in Quebec. If you are covered by Quebec medicare (basically all permanent residents), you have to be covered for drug insurance. If you are eligible through work or a professional association, you have to sign up for that. If you aren't eligible, you get the government insurance which is, for 2014, a maximum of $607/year based on income. It gets paid along with QC income tax and that's where the calculation is done.

Generally, the drug portion of the premium for group insurance is similar to what one would pay for the gov't insurance. Might be a bit more if it has a lower co-pay.

I was always glad that my mother married my dad but reading all your health trials and tribulations I am SO glad she didn't marry the American RAF pilot she dated before she met Dad!

Good ol' National Health Service!

I love my pharmacy! It's a local family run shop. Father-daughter run for several years. Dad recently retired but daughter took over. Know them by first names. Always ask about us when we go in.
