So, I went to Walgreen's for my "free" flu shot last night....
and was told that BCBS of Arizona doesn't cover the shot....only BCBS of NC, Iowa and some other state that I cannot remember.

WTF?

They said that I could still get my "free" flu shot for $29.99.

What a bunch of BS.



Translation: "Who the hell do these people think they are for not giving me whatever I want for free?!"

5. I haven't had a flu shot since high school
They used to give them to us for free in school. That's been quite some time. And I haven't gotten the flu yet. Here's hoping my luck holds. But I don't count on it -- what with the broken foot, pinched nerve in my leg, and the scrotum boil all at the same time and all.


Ummm... sorry folks, I like you and all... but I will never discuss my scrotum boils with you.

11. WTF - people unreccing this? Guess they don't want the truth
to be spoken about this.

I paid $30 at my rheumatologist's office when I was there getting another injection. They said insurance wouldn't reimburse.


The truth? What truth?

13. Nothing in life is "free"
Someone has to pay for it somewhere along the line.


Uh oh. 11 posts and making something that sounds like common sense? He won't be there tomorrow.

27. Big Pharma double dips
When asked about the high price of pharmaceuticals they immediately scream, "RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT COSTS".

They never mention that a large portion of that "research and development costs" are government subsidized.

You pay Big Pharma with your taxes, and at the local pharmacy counter.


Oh, good recovery. You can stay a little while now.

35. Well no kidding. I guess my $1,000 + premiums PER MONTH (before deducts and co-pays)
aren't enough to cover those kind of extravagances.


You need to get off DU and find a better insurance company. Or stop lying. I highly doubt you spend $12,000+ a year on Health Insurance.

I'm sure the DUmmies were expecting Obama/Biden to come to their hovels this year and give them the shots personaly. :rolleyes:

These are the same idiots who make insurance claims for $30.00. What moron files claims for piddly amounts like this? Does anybody here know what it costs to process an insurance claim?:confused:

So he pays 1000 dollars + per month on health insurance and he thinks 30 dollars is a big deal? Not buying it one bit. Not sure if he is stupid or lying, probably both.

BCN covers flu shots for me, and my employer also gives them away for free. I choose not to get one, because I have pretty good resistance to disease.

But if you really have a good reason for getting a flu shot (working in the hospital, having chronic health issues), $29.99 is really not that much money.
