Matter o fact it grown 11.7% since 2007.......

Federal Workforce Continues to Grow Under Obama Budget
Census bureau (which agrees with those figures of 11.7%) might make a better/less- partisan source than the Heritage Foundation, a conservative "think tank" (advocacy group)

Walgreens won't be a covered provider effect January 1. (If you didn't already know). Could be why they've been pushing the 90 day refill lately - want to get what they can before people change providers.

Important Information for TRICARE Beneficiaries About Walgreens and Your Retail Pharmacy Benefit - Express-Scripts.com (http://www.express-scripts.com/TRICARE/news/networkChange.shtml - broken link)

Walgreens remains in the pharmacy network through Dec. 31, 2011, but the time for you to act is now. If you fill a prescription at Walgreens after Dec. 31, 2011, you will pay 100% of the cost and you will need to file a paper claim for non-network benefit reimbursement. For more information, view your detailed copayment/cost share information. To avoid potential disruption to your medication, it is important for you to take action now.

Yeah, I'm really bummed about Walgreens - they have a drive thru window. I always thought things like that were for the really lazy, but it's a huge plus when you have a baby in tow.

I'm not too worried about the postal service - our "regular" meds seem to arrive with plenty of time to spare.

Congress passed the law which is bleeding the Post Office Dry in order to fund employees who will be laid off anyway. I assume both party's were present.

At any rate the Post Office will take twice as long to deliver prescriptions if you don't have to go to the nearest still open Post Office to pick it up.
