Re: [IP] Re: Advance PCS

The cost factor was huge. I would pay 10% up to first $1000 per year with
Durable medical goods when for a three month supply it is $5 a RX. I pay
less in a year's supply going through the RX plan then I would pay with one
shipment from Minimed.

The supplies are still from Minimed. It's often shipped in the same box that
MerckMedco got from Minimed. In two years with about 7-8 shipments the turn
around time from my phone call to refill to my getting the package was
always under two weeks time.
