HEALTH INSURANCE BLUES & PRESCRIPTIONS

Recently I have seen many health insurance commercials on T.V. that claim to save you money over other plans. Anyone familiar with any of these, or what they have to offer?

However, if you are without these types of insurance and have a Walgreen’s near you, ask the Pharmacist about their Wal-Card. It saves you some money and you get a few extra perks too.

Just a word of caution on this one. Transferring prescriptions can lead to deadly medication interactions if they are not all transferred and just one is missed by your new pharmacy. So be careful. I prefer to deal with only one pharmacy and get to know the pharmacist for just this reason. Plus if you get to know them they can be a great source of medical advice.
