I’m not necessarily disagreeing with you, I’m just recognizing that we’re dealing with a teeager.
And teenagers are often not the most logical creatures on the planet.
I know there have been times my hubby has misplaced his inhaler, and insurance won’t refill right away (a limit on how many they cover over a certain pd. of time)
It would have been interesting, too, if the writer had bothered to look into her coverage.
It is very expensive stuff, and I could see if money was a problem - then a person might be reluctant to go through the inhaler too quickly - developing a tendency to only take a puff when you are already in trouble.
What type of inhaler are you talking about? My older son was asthmatic and we would occasionally lose albuterol inhalers (the emergency one). A pharmacy once told me that they couldn't fill the scrip because the insurance wouldn't pay for another.
I asked how much it cost out of pocket. It was $8.50.
