I just went to the pharmacy to refill my meds. I have 4 prescriptions, for various medications to treat my allergies and asthma.
I just switched health insurance, so I didn't have my new prescription card. I told the pharmacist to just charge me the full amount, and I'll try to get reimbursed from my insurance company later.
When he rang up the total, I almost had a heart attack. For 4 medications, the total was $402.00.
Oh. My. Goodness.
It was so much, my debit card was turned down, and I had to use my American Express card. I'm surprised handcuffs didn't pop out of the cash register to confiscate my card.
I'm moving to Canada. #
