it never fails

So since I did my bottom line yesterday, of course I got more insurance forms in the mail yesterday. It never fails Smile These were from August of last year when I was in the coma. They were lab/path services. Another $1500 in costs which were all discounted. So now the total is $208,500. I don't understand why it takes so long for hospitals/doctors to do the paperwork on medical costs. That's more than 6 months ago. I was still getting bills for my real father's illness 2 years later.

I bought a $50 Elephant Bar gift card from Plastic Jungle yesterday for 15% off. This is for my dad's bday next month. Poor guy has his bday on April 15th - he hates it. I also got a $50 McDonald's gift card at 15% off from Gift Card Rescue. Saved $15 total.

I finished reading the library book Legacies by Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill. Sci/Fi. - pretty good. Kind of an American version of Harry Potter. Not quite as imaginative, but still good. It's for young teens, which I didn't know when I got it. I like Mercedes Lackey and just got it for that reason.

    Maybe the doctors procrastinate like a lot of folks do?

    My father's birthday is April 15th, too.

    I don't know why they take so long to send the bills out. I know whenever I have a surgery I seem to get things up to nine months later. Crazy.

    I still haven't been billed for a surgery I had last March. I know that my insurance was making noises that they wouldn't cover it. I was told I could contest it after I was billed. I haven't been billed. I called the surgical center and they said they were working with the insurance company. My head is now firmly in the sand and I hope it all goes away, but I know it probably won't.

    Generally the billing to the patient takes SOOO long because the hospital or Dr and insurance company go back & forth several times re: $ amount, coding and coverage in general.
