Pharmacy Adventure: Long Story Short

So yesterday I stop by my local Bartell to ask for a refill of my allergy medicine, telling them I’ll come back later to pick it up. I forget to pick it up last night so plan to pick it up on my way home tonight. In the meantime, this afternoon I entered my “authorization code” on my new insurer’s website so that I can avail of their mail-order pharmacy service, and then I fill out the little form to transfer my prescriptions for future ordering. I go to Bartell tonight to pick up my medicine only to find they already got my transfer request (it was like two hours prior!) and have canceled my prescription! Talk about efficiency. However, I don’t want to wait and see what happens with the online thing, so when they say they can re-fill it, I say “go ahead.” ┬áThen – when I get my medicine, the charge is twice what I’m expecting, so I look at the pill bottle, and they’ve filled it for 90 days instead of my usual 30! I feel a little bamboozled, but at least I don’t have to go to the pharmacy again for a while. . .
