Costco Pharmacy.

November 18th, 2006 at 01:52 am

I almost had to resort to that today. There isn't a Costco close enough for me to justify having a membership so I don't. But when I went to pick up a refill today they initially wanted $136 for my Rx. Umm. They said it had been denied as my insurance card had expired in 6/06. That's news to me since I've been using it for over a year and this is the first time I've had problems with it. They took my card, and called again. Got everything straightened out fortunately. Not before a slight bit of panic set in though. I would have had to charge it in order to get it imediately and then pull all the money out of my medical savings to cover the charge. Ugh.

I looked up Costco's prices a while back though just to have an idea. And for this particular drug, with no insurance, it was only $57. Definately would have been worth the drive over there to pick it up had they insisted on me paying that. Providing of course that I could have either gotten a new Rx from the Dr or at least some samples to tide me over. I hate scares like that.

    maybe it would pay to see if costco also accepts your insurance... glad to hear everything got straightened out!

    Just want to point out that non member can get medicine from the Costco Pharmacy. It's the only exception they allow.

    tina: Already checked and no they don't Frown I even called to verify.

    kimiko: Yup! That's the only reason I'd consider it.
