availability


  I recently took a prescription to Target pharmacy and I was told that this drug has probably been discontinued. They looked it up on their computer and had not record of it. Is it still available? And what pharmacy stocks it?

Sufficient. The rates must be sufficient to pay the QuotesChimp's anticipated losses from claims and the overhead expenses. No state insurance department will permit any insurance company to set its basic rates so low as to result in its insolvency (see Post 39).
