Oh, happy day!Posted: December 3, 2012 Filed under: Uncategorized 7 Comments
After stressing about the big bill and nearly coming to blows with the patient “advocate” provided by my insurance company, I found this in my mailbox.
Note the statement balance, aka amount I owe.
Thank you to my sweet surgeon for saying “bah humbug” to the out-of-network status my insurance company conferred upon his surgical center. I love that man.
And many thanks to my sweet readers who expressed umbrage on my behalf.
Always good to hear good news and to see doctors who have a heart! My husband and I constantly wonder about elderly people or people with limited mental capacity (anesthesia and chemo will do that too) who get these bills from the insurance company and they pay them, even though it’s just a dispute or delay tactic so that the company doesn’t have to pay. Hope this good news is a start to a good week for you–
I hope this has renewed your Christmas spirit, Miss Grinchy-pants. I believe that people generally are good, and the ones who aren’t work for your insurance carrier. Cheers!
Now that’s more like it!!
WHEW! I’m so relieved for you! Thanks goodness for people who are willing to help fight on our behalf. I’m so glad your surgeon helped with the problem. ~Catherine
Ah. Those are some glorious 0’s!
So happy for you! I think I hear corks popping!
Just catching up to your recent blog posts, Nancy, and I’m happy to see the outcome of this was so wonderful! Hallelujah! Gotta love a good zero! 😉
