Hi Mel, I have Champva insurance. I can order mine either by mail or at the pharmacy. Jeniffer Are you sure you can't get Lortab for the 4 dollars deal at Walmart. I remember once I had to pay a copay a couple years ago my co was 25% and walmart charged me 1.00. So that would have meant that if was 4 bucks without insurance. If you followed that. If I were you I'd call your dr. tomorrow and ask them to call him a weeks worth of predisone. They are real real cheap. Even without insurance. and it beats not having any. I usually go ahead and pick mine up at the pharmacy because my dr won't let me get my pain meds by mail. Even though my insurance will allow me to get lever 1 2 and 3 drugs as well. I hope you get this taken care of and try to keep a few around for times like this. I know it's frustrating.

Hi! Melissa and Everyone,
I use my mail in pharmacy by choice and am more than satisfied. Medco is a big, big, company, but in 3 yrs. of using them, I only once didn't get a refill in time. It was for my prednisone, and I called my doc, terrified of missing any doses and he was more than happy to call in a 1 month script to be filled by my local pharmacy to hold me over until my 105 day supply came from Medco. They held the 3 month order back, until my current month wait for it time had passed. I had to pay the $3.99 copay for 30 tabs, instead of $10.00 for 105 days worth, but was grateful. And actually it was my fault since I waited too long to phone in for the refill. In fact, our local pharmacy, a Rite Aid, is so helpful, and actually called Medco for me. Here in NY, I was told they are trying to set up affiliation agreements with local pharmacies. We can choose our prescription plan, local or Medco, but it is far cheaper to get my 9 prescriptions through the mail.
I don't mind at all . I live an hour from both Buffalo and Rochester. I go to docs at Strong Hospital. We are having a heat wave, it's 32 right now, but the snow banks are so high you can't see to pull out. We are looking forward to single digit cold mid week again. We have family in Texas, near Shreveport, and Georgia, and cold rain is almost worse than snow, because snow is alot prettier than mud. I have often felt I was driving to work in a snow globe. We live on a little lake, and I love to swim, so our 5 months of nice weather balances out our winters. I miss being able to be out in the sun alot. It's nice to chat, I hope you get to see your family often.
