The pharmacy that I order my meds from changed their policy. The new policy is that they carry only one brand of medication that I use. It is a different brand than I used before. The pharmacy no longer carries the generic brand I have used in the past. The name brand is not carried either.
OK. Everybody use the same brand medications. Government ordered. Socialized medicine. Government choice. The "Fed." brand medication.
The same brand for everybody. Except I don't want that brand.
* What if I go to the other member pharmacy to see if they have the generic brand I used or the name brand? I have to pay the total cost for the name brand. But what if they only have the one brand that the other pharmacy carries? I can't get the brand I use and I'm dictated this brand I don't want. I can't afford to pay the total cost for the name brand even if they have it. So, I am stuck with what the government wants me to take.
Indirect dictation. Dictation by the numbers. Slipping slowly into government dictation.
