    You are nipping at my heals, brah! But, if you eliminated all of my posts that were gibberish and useless, you would be about 8,000 ahead of me!

    More like someone bought at Hightower, thought carbon wheels would make him ride better, didn't like sweating, knows nothing, and bought an ebike. Up for sale soon....ebike...only used a few miles. Decided I didn't like putting out any effort at all. Buying a moto.

    This is getting ridiculous, thank goodness for my insurance plan ($5 vs $13k).

    I just filled a script. Nothing like that, but they couldn't get the insurance info right away so I mentioned il just buy it.
    They said it was $55.00. I mentioned I'll just wait. All of a sudden they whisper, ok $22.00...
    Prices for retail on drugs don't mean squat. Cash should be least expensive for many reasons.

    I'm guessing the real price, although high, is less than half that.
    Can't beat the $5 though!!

    I've gone to independent pharmacy's , paid cash, and got the exact same item for one tenth of the chain stores asking price.

    I would do the same, smart.

    This is a biological injectable that has to be ordered through a specialty pharmacy, I take it every 3 months so that would retail for over 50k a year. If my copay wasn’t $5 I probably would be using some other medication like methotrexate that has some potential nasty side effects. My rheumatologist had to make sure I was approved before prescribing it because insurance companies will often make you try the less expensive route first.

    I doubt many people actually pay the $13k, it’s part of the insurance inflation game. This stuff is like rattlesnake antivenin!

    I know someone who has the most extreme case of hemophilia. His meds are priced at $42K/month! :eek::eek::eek:

    One of his parents is a State employee so their insurance covers it. But still, WTF?! :mad::mad::mad:

    His dad is a Godzillionaire so I doubt it will be a issue. It's my understanding that the company makes this particular med specifically for him and he uses it often to keep his condition under control. A month's worth of treatment comes in a BIG insulted box that is chilled with lots of ice packs. It must be kept cold when it's in storage.

    One tiny syringe came in this foam chest with 6 ice packs inside another box. :confused: We actually wash and reuse the ice packs though (they say reusable on the outside).

    I deliver 2-3 of those a day. So many things are over packed though I can appreciate that they do it with medicine.

    That was a good save Ed. I heard it from a little birdie that the UPS higher-ups keep a close eye on this website. ;)
