Medical Bills- UGH!

August 17th, 2010 at 03:36 pm

So I had a bunch of blood tests done that I didn't even really need in March. I wasn't even aware of what they were testing for. I just knew that I was being tested for problems with my liver (I am an epileptic and am on a medication that can affect the liver, so no I'm not an alcoholic, lol!) The tests range from 29.75 to 90.50 and there were 6 of them done which caused the bill to be 365.35. I think that is ridiculous. Five months later I finally get the bill for 124.00. The insurance picked up the rest. Actually my insurance sent ME a check for this amount way back in April but I didn't know who the money was for since I hadn't received a bill from anybody. Maybe I shouldn't be complaining since technically insurance paid the whole thing (the 124 is actually from my health savings account). But it just sucks that I'm getting the bill now. I don't know if I should pay it from my checking account or pull it from my savings where I originally put the money.

In other news, in a few days from now I will be paying the very last payment on my car. It will feel so good. It's a large payment though (550) so my checking account won't be feeling so good.

I put a dress up on Craigslist that I had never worn and it didn't sell. I'm going to try and sell it through ebay I guess since I would like to make money off it before donating it. It was once an expensive dress.

Bye everyone, and hope everyone is having better weather than I am here. It has been raining consistently all day due to some storm that's hit the gulf.

    personally i would see that as a blessing - i would rather the bill now than getting it months ago. more interest on your savings. i got some blood tests done in february and still haven't been billed for them.

    At least your insurance company sent the check, so that's something... but it would be nice to have some sort of lead on what it was for! Good luck on everything. You are keeping plenty busy...
