In about the same on Saturday still that heat advisory in high temperature 96. It is like triple digits. Until mine them for solar chief meteorologist Bryan Busby KM BZ whether. Ninety for an errant TCI it is 96 downtown 90s40 were official weather station the radio dot com app is the official new home of KM BZ. Download it today listen to us any time anywhere Kara marks or his 981 KM BZ. Yeah. No. The I. Sarah Palin parts. I'm on the day they sit on this today and I know if this is happening you already know about it. Man she's knocking it never confident she cost. Today we'll schoolroom have you. Her. Of something called Express Scripts lot of people use them. So instead of physically getting out and writing to a pharmacy. Express Scripts and other companies like it will mail your prescriptions two year. Look here sir it's going as. And Mac yet no group. We are blurred a little bit more about the shooting downtown it is an officer involved shooting at least the second one of the are safe city to take kids names are one north planned. And there are reports that it's not just one person downtown but we're still waiting on and no one. Could be multiple people hurt. Possibly dad Horst we're still waiting on details this is all unconfirmed at this point but just FYI. We've got an officer involved shooting downtown at twelfth and line from there you can correct me if we have any updates that's that's been dale and we can bring this back tomorrow. So Express Scripts is something that allows you especially the elderly Scott. Three months at a time they will mail you your medications. And if you are a military. Survivor though I saw or mouse. Or. Veteran and this includes your mother. You use Express Scripts and there has never been a co pay. For veterans ever. My grandmother its value for you know seventy years. They have never. Had. A co pay and Express Scripts allows the elderly. And keep in mind this is safety for all of us in some cases. It allows them to stay home and not have to make multiple trips to. Bass too gets a pharmaceuticals. So I'm not talking to my aunt today in my grandmother was very upset. Because she got a bill she got a bill for 63 dollars and if you're on a fixed income. There is not 63 dollars for a lot of these military spouses and veterans to spare ever not. And my grandmother was saying you know as foggy as she is sometimes she knows what those veterans' benefits are. She knows she's not have to be paying a co pay. Chris you are a tri care they are she was she is on tri care the military's health insurance system. And the AARP of all organizations. Print this. Article a couple of months ago and maybe this hasn't hit your family yet but there is now higher co payments. And more hassle for you to get the medications that you needed went into effect actually back in February. Co pays increase for most tri care beneficiaries. Who get their prescription drugs at the tripe your pharmacy home delivery. This is why it is important Scott if you want to avoid the co pay. You have to get in the car. And physically. Drive. To pick them up and for my grandmother that's key solar air force base which is nowhere near her home. My aunt would have to make a what does an hour. Trip one way or multiple times a month to grab those medications some of them are staggered. Some of them she has refilled more often than others and she has glaucoma. She's almost ninety years old. And so my answer to mine on today. We're going to have to figure out a way to pay for this is I can't take off work and riot. Right next to a base. Your iPod which a lot of people who live here do important abort their white ammonia that you would have to you understand what I'm saying god if you wanna save the co pay. So here's my question is who's in charge of this stuff. Why are you incentivizing. Elderly veterans and their families. Your instant advising them to get on the road and drive. So why did they start charging AMOCO out of nowhere. The co pay increase was included in the 2018. National defense authorization act. And will continue to rise over the next decade. The higher so it came from congress listen yes we'll affect military retirees. The most. As they are more likely to use mail delivery and retail pharmacies to fill their prescriptions. This year under the home delivery option co pays for ninety today supplies of generic drugs went from zero dollars to seven that's my grandma. And co pays for brand name medications jumped from twenty to 24. But it gets worse co pays are going up from fifty to 53 dollars. For some drugs. And they are basically saying if you don't. Dry. You were thirty day prescription filled at a retail pharmacy at the base. This is going to keep increasing and by 20/20 seven. It's jumping to sixteen dollars for generics and 48 dollars for brand name version and if you go to post. Do you have to pay the cobra it is my understanding you do not but the problem is for my grandma and others seniors. She can't drive to base Scott there's it's not happening for the safety of America. We need to not be doing next. But you know if you're if you're eighty or 76 and you're on a fixed income and you see. That okay it's going to be now 63 dollars a month for me if I keep having a look at male let's be honest it's a lot of money for some people that's a lot of what we are now incentivizing. Elderly veterans to get in their car. And physically drive to pick up something which would close six which is that why wouldn't we just say yeah this mail list. All I got mail it. And who who was making the money to have these seniors driving. That's what I want and now. Was this a pharmaceutical. Which is due to the pharmacy somehow make more money if you are physically in the. Their store I just don't understand I guess if you know please call 5767798. And if you're thinking luck seven box well it's not just seven it's seven. Per prescription. Multiple prescriptions in my. Give me a break I saw my mom on vacation god bless her yeah she 73 years old dance I was in her room one night and she has that Monday through Sunday. Tablet thing you know I'm talking mania where they they put all their pills in one little square. Am you know I know my mom is not the best of health. Gov lesser but. I was shocked. I didn't realize my mom was taken that much Madison. And and when when you have to get him MT WT. FS has thing you're take allotments yes. People are right in saying hey welcome to America everyone's costs are going up. And here here and let you have no co pay when you fill it at a military pharmacy. How convenient is that for 90% of the people who need it it's not unless you live well I think a lot of people stay where they retire. But to your point and your right. A lot of people don't stay retired. I mean you were Graham on Graham Paul. Live and what Alabama. This race is missing up. Arm the nearest base is what it's like 62 miles away. And so. No I mean my mother. Lives in Shawnee my dad retired Portland. It's an hour roundtrip pardon me but they've got a they've got to cross that bridge while that 88 year old woman Ivan now.

Of the elderly veterans and their families world who cannot afford. Who cannot physically. To rise to go get their Medicaid didn't think is on tri care.
