Well, that worked out well
I had a prescription to fill, and since I have a high-deductible plan. I figured I’d be paying the full cost, since I hadn’t hit my deductible yet.
I know the drill: I checked prices and dug up a coupon that would bring the price down to $58 at one of the big chains. Not great, but certainly better than the $123 or more at other stores.
The pharmacy tech checked the coupon, then asked if I wanted to run it through my insurance. Sure .. if if nothing else, I could apply it toward the deductible..
She ran the numbers and said “You know, with your insurance, the cost is $24.”
Sometimes, things work out better than expected.
(Though I'm a bit worried that I'm going to get a letter saying, 'Oh, we made a mistake. You owe us $100.')
