I'd love to use mail order, and my insurance provides incentives for doing that in the form of lower co-pays. Right now I live in Austin, Texas and I'm a little hesitant to have my meds sitting in a hot mailbox in the sun all day, as heat does degrade some drugs. When it's over 100 here, I know the inside of the mailbox has to be at least 150. We'll be moving in the fall, and I plan to look into mail order then.
