Medical Question

As newbies, just purchased our boat, we have a medical question? I am on cholesterol meds and need blood test every 6 months to get script refilled and don't plan on being in any one location. Any info would help.

Re: Medical Question

Any medical lab can perform the test and fax or email the results to your physician.

Re: Medical Question

In Mexico, for instance, health care is very inexpensive and hassle free. Oh, and superior to US care. You can just walk into the lab and get your test, fast and cheap. If you need a Dr., it's about $20.00 and no waiting and he/ she will talk to you for 1/2 an hour. For your meds, you probably don't even need a scrip.
Health care was one of our biggest concerns before we crossed the border but we were worried for no reason. It has been SO MUCH BETTER outside the US.

Re: Medical Question

Quest Diagnostics and Lab Corp are the two major medical labs in the US. They have branches everywhere. They'll gladly send your test results to your physician. Take care!
