Special Deliveries: Rx Needed

Google Images I wonder if there is a better way. I have been using the same pharmacy for two years now and they have done a perfectly good job for me. But the rigmarole involved seems a bit much, even with all the modern conveniences involved. Every month before my Novolog and test strip stronghold runs out I go to the Longs Pharmacy website and plunk in my prescription numbers, store pick-up number, name, e-mail, phone number, and check a couple of boxes to get my online refill request sent off. Then a day or two later when I am sure they are ready for pick-up, I drive over to the pharmacy being actively aware of when they close because I inevitably need the Novolog by now, do the in-line wait, and fork over some money. Then I started using the OmniPod.


Since starting the OmniPod, I have received a three month supply of pods every third month of the year. They get delivered to my front door automatically, keeping me steadily pumping for another three months. I wonder though, is it possible to have insulin delivered to a home address? What about refrigeration? Is the uncertainty of where the meds come from an issue? Will I start developing Brimley like characteristics? I really need to do some research and find out if the logistics make sense and if there are increased costs associated with using a delivery service.


At the present time, I will become more affiliated with CVS Caremark Corporation, who has recently acquired Longs Drugs with a 2.6 billion dollar price tag. It seems they offer automatic prescription refills... intriguing. Impress me CVS!
