Prescription insurance was told that it could only be MAIL vs being picked up in person. Has anyone ever heard of this?

    Yes. Your insurance determines how it fills prescriptions.

    Yes, mine is the same way. Your insurance company gets a cheaper price from the mail pharmacy.

    Yes, some companies do this, like ExpressScripts. They can get a lower price than the one your local pharmacy is likely to charge.
