Postage increase affects all

It is amazing how a one-cent increase in the cost of mailing a letter affects all of us.

The University of Utah Pain Clinic has been mailing a prescription form once a month to my pharmacy because it had to be in writing.

Today, when I called to have them mail my monthly prescription form, I was told they would not be mailing any more prescription forms because of the cost of mailing. I was given the choice of traveling to the U. from my home in Murray each month, or sending them a supply of postage stamps, and they would use them to mail my future prescription forms.

Expressing my displeasure with what I was hearing, I was told it was not in their budget. Because of the hundreds of dollars we spend with the U. Medical Center each year, it seems ludicrous they can't afford the extra penny to mail this form.
