Things that Bog You Down

Hmmm. I just got a doctor’s bill from our ER visit in February. I don’t know if I blogged this or not, believe it or not I don’t blog 80% of my life, but Bones’ was having a hard time breathing and was retracting, so I took him to the ER back in Feb.

I received a website with my account and password so I thought, “Cool! I’ll pay this sucker on-line!” Benh! Wrong answer. Its only a site to edit your account information.

What a bummer.

And on a downer of a note, I just got a note from my health insurance company that they are in a fight with Tenet and are dropping all Tenet hospitals and that probably means some of the doctors I trust most will be dropped too… like my frickin’ cardiologist and ENT… which means… I will be looking for new health insurance. Love that. LOOOOVE that. There are very few hospitals I trust and the one big one I do, is about to be dropped… and so… in my spare time… we will be looking for new health insurance. Great.

Yep, got the same message from our insurance. The one that Tot was in was on the list to be dropped if negotiations didn't work out. Sigh.

I friggin' hate that crap! I've had to do it before, and will surely have to do it again.

Last time, I knew what plan I was going to have to go to, so I talked to my soon-to-be-ex-doc, who was too cool, and asked him if he would recommend someone to me. He asked for a list of the doctors, and sent me three, in order of his preference. That was an incredible help.

Hopefully you don't have to find someone else, but if you do, maybe you can get some recommendations.

I'd stop opening your mail. You keep getting some shitty news and notices.

AWTM, scary that this pole dancing thing may turn into a viable gig. Holy crap.

T1G, the good thing is I've been in the area long enough to know who is good and who is not. I just hate the thought of changing... really hate it.

Sissy- Heh. I'm not home for 2 weeks. No more bad mail.
