I got my first paycheck from New Job on Friday, so I could afford to buy my meds. (Insurance from New Job won't start until November 1st, even though I started working there August 3rd.)
I paid 10% of my (monthly) paycheck for my (monthly) meds. I found that interesting, so I thought I'd share those numbers with you.
(Also, new insurance covers "the pill" and Norplant. Not Nuvaring, which is what I use. So, either I pay $70 a month for my birth control, or I go back to the less-reliable, more-prone-to-human-error daily pill. Can you tell how thrilled I am about all this?)
