Re: [IP] For Christine who finds insulin costs $69 / vial!

I actually have Wal-Mart insurance and you have to use a Wal-Mart/Sam's
pharmacy.  Sam's sells their insulin right at cost. I have seen the sheet on
it.  They used to sell their test strips just below their cost to get folks
to come in.  Interesting marketing idea. Like their milk they have no markup
on it at all, and most often it's sold at a loss.

Anyhow, if I was paying out right for my insulin I would buy it from that
location.  But as it stands I pay 20% for my 4 bottles a month, pricey.

Thanks anyhow, some one else here might need to know that.

Buy your insulin in Canada.  I just bought 6 vials at humolog for $149
Canadian at my local Costco pharmacy.  Then, you can afford to ditch the odd
