  •  I'll tell ya what a heart attack is. It is when (14+ / 0-)

    some jackass at Anthem tells your husband that the 294K hospital bill will only be covered at 45% because your WIFE! has not met her deductible and maximum out of pocket for the year. That is a fucking heart attack.

    And then you tear into the 1/2" booklet called the Combined Evidence of Coverage And Disclosures Form (the bible of your policy) and the weasel words within can really be interpreted either way. Then you call e-healthinsurance that sold you the policy and they can't give you a straight answer either. That was a three week long heart attack until we logged onto Anthem last week and saw they paid the bill.

    I really didn't realize how much that was weighing on my mind and sub-consciously affecting me until I saw it had been paid. I almost started to cry.

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

      living in Quebec, it is theonly province not accepting other provinces cards at a 1 to 1 ratio.  They pay less and have made it impossible for ottawa doctors to direct bill quebec so my family practice center at the hospital has been billing me so that i can get reimbursed whatever quebec will reimburse.

      I have no money so have piled up the bills and as of Jan 1 they move to a point of sale billing practice which means money upfront. Been freaking as i really need my docs.

      Went in all depressed over something and had some meds renewed with the resident when he came back and asked me to fill a form giving them permission to direct bill quebec.  I guess some exceptions were carved out when they went to upfront billing and I will be one of them.  I did cry
