Today Steve and I picked up Malarone for our RTW trip. $1240! What the ... !!! 

I mistakenly believed that Malarone costs $1 per day ... it's was more like $7.

Did I get ripped off by CVS or is this really what it costs? Seems craaaaazy to me.

Nope - there was no coverage for any of the travel vaccines. Crazy right!?? If I were to get malaria, they would cover my medication and hospitalization then though. Makes no sense!
