I had no idea....

My Dr is an angel. She is the kind of Dr who really cares...asks questions, helps where she can. She has always offered my samples at each visit for my inhaler- over the past two years I have never had to fill a prescription. Today, I needed a new inhaler, so I called in and asked for a prescription. Oh if only I knew then what I know now. I stopped and picked it up after work SEVENTY DOLLARS later! And that is after insurance paid over $200...and it lasts ONE MONTH. Holy cow!! I have a new appreciation for how well my doctor takes care of her patients (ie!) I will need to either get samples, or find a less expensive solution. That is crazy. Thankfully, I have a prepaid medical card, so it wasnt a hit to the budget...but it will be if I have to refill this darn thing every month...ouch.

I finally slept last night, but still ended up having to take a nap at work. I am blessed to work somewhere that there is a sick room for days like today. I used my lunch break to sleep for a bit.

I had my last bagel at work today- so I need to figure out breakfast for tomorrow...then I have a four day weekend. Big Grin So excited about the hub coming home tomorrow night and a long weekend getaway!!

    Welcome to the club. I have to adjust my entire budget come about Aug/Sept/Oct when we run out of the corporate sponsored HSA (due to us being a HDHP) and I have to pay $230 a month for my daughter's monthly inhaler and her nasal spray (though I have found a $20 savings program for the Veramyst). But if it's what we have to do to keep her breathing, there is of course no question about it. It is just much more convenient when it's covered 100%.

    Ugh...this is a club I would love to avoid. Frown Well, I will be talking to the doctor about options. Sorry you are experiencing a similar expense!!

    Check the price at Costco. You don't have to be a member to get Rxs filled (if you're not already a member).
