In just as much as I turn around, I realized I may be caught in a "maze", if I don't be careful. So as, to prevent things from sneaking up on me, I need to get all organized.
Now a days, anymore, when you call up to make an appointment, you might be looking at a 4 - 6 week window. They want a 24 hour cancellation notice. If you should miss, you may be looking at a $25.00 rescheduling fee. However, when the doctor cancels, they don't offer to pay you for your inconvenience. lol
The phone rang today; the Endodontic's office reminded me I have another appointment today. Dennis has a another doctor's appointment this week too. It's all good , it's just that it kind of snuck up on me.
I don't know if any of you have heard but the Tampa Bay area is a test pilot for Wally world's new $4.00 prescription program. It was announced about 2 weeks ago on the local news and in the papers that the massive chain store was using this area to test their new $4.00 prescription pilot program. There was a mad rush to take advantage of the program. You aren't even required to have medical insurance, however, the medication must be listed on their approved list.
This can be a substantial savings even if only two of your six prescriptions are on the list. Within, 24 hours the local Target jumped aboard and offered the same $4.00 price for prescriptions. I am so curious to see if this program will hold up. If not, will the little independent pharmacies be able to survive. Is this just a ploy to run the little guy out of business. I hope not, cause that would be kind of sneaky.
Then I can't help but wonder what in the heck is the mark-up on these prescriptions...Is that why we are seeing an E* store, or a W* store, on every corner and look at who they are taking advantage of. If Wally World can offer prescriptions at such unbelievable prices why can't our Country do something about our medical crisis. We should be able get our prescriptions at an affordable price, whether that be here in the US or in Canada, if it is more economical.
I realized, I still need to get another wedding gift for Heather and Matts wedding next week, and I haven't even decided on what we are going to wear.
I love weddings, so at least we are getting the icky stuff out of the way first. lol
So, it is just the two of us romping around like two big cuddly Panda Bears, and hoping you figure your way through the maze so you can enjoy a fun filled healthy life.
