I went to my college health care clinic for the first time last week because money is tight around the holidays but I needed a refill of some prescriptions but because my insurance is grandfathered in, it would cost a pretty penny to see the doctor. I did not need much, just basically signature. I have been taking these meds for nearly ten years now yet once a year I need to see a doctor to stay on them.
So I called the clinic to see if they could help me. And it was great. They made an appointment in the evening, no copay and I sent in the script to my online pharmacy. The pharmacy accepted the script and I got my meds just like I would have, if I had spent $50-100 and gone to a private doctor.
So, how much did I pay? Nothing, my school fees covered it. They don't care blood work or such but for simple problems, I can't see going anywhere else. I am so excited to find a new savings and be able to remove that cost for next year!
As I always say, never stop looking and you'll never stop finding a way to improve! So that is my holiday cheer, what about you?
