Today's freebie: medical care
Saw my allergist today, having some residual symptoms since getting sick a few weeks ago, and this was an already scheduled, annual check up with him. Since we already met our deductible until July 1 of 2014, as long as they provider is in plan, this MD visit cost me $0. I also asked about and received my annual flu shot while I was there. Additionally, they e-mailed in 3 RX's (3 month supply each) to my new mail order company, saving me time, postage. Again, my cost will be $0 as the deductible was met. Finally, MD gave me the sample above, which is a new formulation of the 2 (I use generics now) RX nasal sprays I take. I had priced out switching to this all in one, combo RX-it would have cost me $500 more/year, so I passed. I'll use the freebie up in the meantime.
So, allergist is off my list. Dermatologist will be next.
