Medical Bills


On Thursday when I got home there was a bill in the mail from the UIC hospitals. I opened it and found out our expenses regarding the emergency room visits (Elizabeth only) totaled around $29,000. Apparently Blue Cross thought there was a hint of a chance Elizabeth had some other insurance and held out until we made them check and discover that she was not, in fact, trying to cheat them (or be cheated by them).

After one phone call, $28,000 has already been paid by the insurance company (minus $300 copay), and the rest should be handled, as well. Insurance is a benefit (or service) that can’t be overlooked.

I’m looking at it as if I got a $29,000 bonus for this year’s work!
