Dear Bird Talk,

Re: the comment submitted by SE Leslie regarding medications over 90 days.

I have never had a problem getting 4.5 months of prescription drugs for our stay in Arizona. Talk to your pharmacist. The restriction is that Pharmacare will not pay. So if you are willing to pay, it should be no problem.

Ed: Several letters came in with the exact same comments.

If YOU pay, it’s OK, and the pharmacy will normally fill whatever your doctor orders. Thanks to: C. Jensen, J. McElheron, K. Norman and Erwin & Judy Beck for their thoughtful replies.
