I gathered with some college friends last weekend. One of my friend’s mom works in the pharmacy where I get my insulin supplies.
“Don’t you have a pharmacy closer?” she asked.
The answer is no. The closest pharmacy is 65 miles. I have 3 options- 65 miles to the east, 65 miles to the north, or 65 miles to the south.
Shipping is nearly $8 a shot, but it is cheaper than driving that far. Although I don’t like to ship my insulin supplies in the heat or the cold. Which (in the Sandhills) is about 2 weeks of decent shipping temperatures.
I do like multiple month supplies, where I can order 2 or 3 months at a time. But you have to watch how you order, or it will double your co-pay. If I ask for a 20 day supply, it is $52. If I ask a month’s supply, it is $117.52. Insurance- I don’t understand it.
Pharmacies on the prairie… they really don’t exist. You have to drive to farm country to find one.
How far is it to YOUR local pharmacy?
