    Is This Where Pigs Live?

    Had to head over to Urgent Care https://www.cuidomedico.com as I was having trouble shaking a sty in my eye. It's like a "tear in your beer" without the Hank Williams. Lots of good protocol action and very efficient and pleasant staff. Met with the doctor after a short wait; she was very knowledgable and a pleasure to deal with. In and out in about an hour with prescription in hand. Will definitely use them again.

    Didn't know the pharmacy next to Superfood had left the area so headed over to Eagle Pharmacy https://boticadiservicio.com near the hospital - I'd already re-filled some of my Canadian prescriptions there as we're here longer than we thought so didn't need to fill out forms again by going there. Very nice staff and helped me with my Papiamento! Learned a little bit about the universal insurance down here as well. **Side note: Canada is the only country with universal health coverage that doesn't cover pharmaceuticals. Grrrr.

    Back to The Manse to deep clean some rooms and whipped up soba noodles with ginger chicken for dinner and some nice sauvignon blanc to celebrate a productive day.

    does Canada have a prescription plan that you can buy into?

    hope your eye is better real soon.

    I made ginger pork yesterday with rice. I’ll have to try it with noodles. Your dish with the chicken looks good! How do the prescription prices in Aruba compare to Canada prices?

    I'm not really sure as I was getting things that I don't regularly buy in Canada (i.e. antibiotics) and I have corporate coverage there as well so don't really pay attention to prices. I didn't have any sticker shock though. Reasonably priced.

    We have used Urgent Care ourselves. In December I sliced my leg requiring 14 stitches. I went to Urgent Care after 5...waited about 20 minutes for doctor to arrive (no problem as far as I was concerned). Up to date on tetnus. But had a prescription for oral antibiotic. Think that was around $50 for 14 days. Then the leg developed an infection after she removed about half the stitches. Antibiotic cream to use for weeks $25. I saw her twice a week for two weeks and weekly after for about 6-7 (she wanted to keep any eye on it!) They only charged once for the doctor's time including the stitches ....$350! We are fortunate to have excellent insurance that covers us worldwide (for which we pay but at a decent discount). We pay directly to Urgent Care and are fully reimbursed when we present detail paperwork from here. We are stunned (and grateful) at the low cost of medical services here.

    A lot of corporations offer health plans for prescriptions and dental. Prescriptions are covered in Ontario for 65+.
