The other day, I was behind a woman who was picking up a prescription at our local pharmacy. She got a bottle of antibiotics which cost her $79. My prescription was for the very same antibiotics.
When this woman heard the pharmacist tell me mine cost just 96 cents, I heard a very loud, "What?" I thought she was going to come out of her skin.
I found out she had no insurance and had to pay full price for her meds. I honestly felt sorry for her.
With my medication card, which was bargained for by Local 1010 through the Steelworker's Union, I paid next to nothing for the same medication. Long live the union!
