I am one of those people that you either read or hear about who has to make a choice whether to renew prescriptions or eat come the last week of the month. At the end of March, I had six empty prescriptions waiting to be filled when I get my General Electric pension check. There is nothing I can do, as my money for the month is gone. I don’t drink, smoke, gamble or do anything to waste money.
This could all be cured if General Electric expanded the renewal time on prescriptions from 22 days, as it is now, to 30 or 31 days.
