Hey everyone, because of this coronavirus stuff, I'm talking with my insurance to get my insulin and other prescriptions through mail-order delivery. Have any of you done this before? Is is reliable? How do they handle the refrigeration?

@jas__44 I do this and I highly recommend it. It's very convenient. I've never had a missed delivery or an issue (they have quite an incentive not to mess that up, dealing with people's medicines!) and it's saved me a bit of money. They keep the prescriptions refrigerated during shipping too so I haven't had an issue on that front either. I have Blue Cross Blue Shield and it was easy to set up.

@jas__44 Hi, I agree with @nomorenomore‍ . My wife does this and is just so convenient. Especially right now. If your insurance will take it, definitely go for it!

Medicare also covers mail-order! I can only really thing of advantages it for it, especially these days. I wonder if what would happen, though if mail service gets reduced at some point during this. I'm sure they have contingency plans in place but it does make you wonder!
