WHAT ABOUT MY INSURANCE??
This is of great concern to us. If you are currently enrolled in the Tacolicious sponsored medical/vision/dental insurance (including Aetna, Sutter/Aetna), your coverage will continue through at least March 31st. We are exploring options to extend that coverage where possible. We recommend that you fill all prescriptions and seek care prior to the end of March.
Please stay tuned for additional information. We'll provide it as we receive it.
