$4.00 For 30 Days From Wally World


Recommended Posts

  • HadIt.com Elder

Now tell me how the VA can justify selling drugs for $8.00 copay.

Wal Mar says that they make a profit on the $4.00 drugs, and that they are not loss leaders.

Congress authorized "Co-Pay" not that the Veteran had to pay the full cost or more for a drug. Co-pay implies that the veteran is paying for part of the cost of the drug.

Wal Mart just announced new additions to it's $4.00 drug list--

Looking at the list--

Loratadine 10 mg

Metformin

Multiple common antibiotics

Lovastatin

Pravastatin

Carvedilol

Ranitidine

Isosorbide Mono

Lisinopril

Nitroglycerin

Note Not available in the following states CA,CO,HI,MN,PA,TN,WI,WY,ND

Some states have price controls making the drugs HIGHER.

WallyWorld is taking on the pharmacy stores the same way they take on Mom and Pops in small towns but this is in the big cities. Its actually a good thing for poor people with no insurance.

I just got a letter from the VA informing me that Ramipril, (Altace), will be replaced by Lisinopril. I have been paying $8/month to the VA. W_mart is charging $4 for the same med. I find it amazing that W_mart can undercut the VA.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
