You can get a scrip, but you have to stick around the whole time and come back to urgent care every time you need a refill. And you only get a refill if it's an emergency then too. Basically you have to use urgent care as your doctor's office.

Its funny because I haven't had health insurance for something like the last 7 years as I have been a contractor/self employed most of it and just haven't found the cost to benefit worth it.
If someone in my family gets Dr. Sick I pay out of pocket to see a Nurse Practitioner usually runs less than $100. Prescriptions at Costco are cheaper then most co-pays. All and all it has been far cheaper than paying for insurance.
But I am lucky I can afford to suck it up once a year or two pay out of pocket.

Well to be fair, even having insurance won't help in many cases.
This year, an estimated 1.5 million Americans will declare bankruptcy. Many people may chalk up that misfortune to overspending or a lavish lifestyle, but a new study suggests that more than 60 percent of people who go bankrupt are actually capsized by medical bills.
Bankruptcies due to medical bills increased by nearly 50 percent in a six-year period, from 46 percent in 2001 to 62 percent in 2007, and most of those who filed for bankruptcy were middle-class, well-educated homeowners, according to a report that will be published in the August issue of The American Journal of Medicine.
"Unless you're a Warren Buffett or Bill Gates, you're one illness away from financial ruin in this country," says lead author Steffie Woolhandler, M.D., of the Harvard Medical School, in Cambridge, Mass. "If an illness is long enough and expensive enough, private insurance offers very little protection against medical bankruptcy, and that's the major finding in our study."

The left are tame, the right are rabid and nonsensical, the center is shell shocked, and the press has no balls. Every since they embedded reporters for the Iraq monstrosity, they haven't hardly had **** to say IMO.
This election is all horserace bullshit, not enough substance.
