Ask for generics and save!
(Retirement Village, Hometown)
Just picked up my meds from the local CVS... and Wendy is a Happy Girl!
I had called the doctor last week.. I needed 2 renewals, but:
(1) I wanted a 90 day supply as that's cheaper with my health care insurances..
(2) I also asked for a generic as a cost-saving measure.. hey, retirees gotta think about these things!
Usually I pay $50 for a 30 day inhaler and $50 for my antihistamine. That's $100 per month for drugs.. simply for my allergies.
So I just picked up THREE inhalers and THREE months of antihistamine - the total $60!
That might not sound like a deal -- but compared to $100 per month X 3 months = $300 for three months!
I saved $240. -- wonder what I can buy for myself? Grin!
I think I deserve something nice for being a conscientious retiree!
DO YOU DO GENERICS?
