Many large insurance companies try to force its customers to utilize their mail order pharmacy services in order to save money, but the truth is that hundreds of thousands of dollars are wasted in unused or discontinued medications every year with mail order pharmacy services.
Watch the slideshow below and see EXACTLY how much money is WASTED and then call your insurance carrier and INSIST on doing business with your local community pharmacy.
By working together we can eliminate a lot of the waste that occurs with mail order pharmacies and cut health care costs for everyone!!

At Sunshine Pharmacy, the pharmacist is ALWAYS available to respond to you directly regarding these topics of concern.
The total of these NINE slides is more than $160,000 dollars in medication waste.
