$250 prescription fix

I'm blessed to have a solid career.

So when diaster strikes - a la bronchitis and sinun infection - I'm covered with decent health insurance.

The doc prescribed me an antibiotic, something for my horrendous cough, and an Albuterol inhaler.

Dad2Amara swung by the pharmacy. Three prescriptions and two bottles of ginger ale later, the pharmacist asked for $3.00.

$3.00?

After leaving the store, Dad2Amara realized I had hit my insurance deductible after my surgery. So my $250 precription bill was virtually erased.

I was charged nothing.

So that's all I needed to do to be able to afford my medications. Have major surgery.

Sad.
