Rich has a post about how only 14,000 prescriptions were filled during the first year of I-SaveRX and was curious about how much the state has spent on this....

One hint is from an audit of IDPR

Five out-of-country travel vouchers for Department employees to participate in fact finding trips to Canada and Europe for the GovernorÂ’s Task Force on Importation of Canadian and European Drugs, totaling $12,371, were not approved in advance by the Chairman of the GovernorÂ’s Travel Control Board.

So almost a dollar ($.88)peprescriptionon went to regulatory travel.

More to come, also using the words Rod Blagojevich and Taxes will really goose your hits.
