1. My doctor asked me to get some bloodwork done but since I'm uninsured I said I couldn't afford it. That's when she told me about the labs inside many Walgreen's pharmacies. I paid $30 for what most testing facilities charge $300. Did you know about Walgreen's testing facilities and their affordable pricing?
