After insurance, I owed the doctors' $244 and change. I called in and asked about the charges. It turns out there was roughly $200 denied by my insurance because the doctors were out of network and not pre-approved. Apparently I was supposed to get a doctor pre-approved before I went to the ER.
So I called the insurance company. The "customer advocate" said she would put it through as in network because I was admitted as an emergency.
A few minutes later, she came back announced proudly that they were going to pay about $27 more on the claim. Yipee. She suggested that I call the doctor's office and ask for a write off.
Someone call Michael Moore.
I know I already posted this clip, but listen for the lady talking about pre-authorizing the ambulance. It's a similar situation.
Sunday night I started Tychus for a belated Christmas gift. This picture is where I was when I went to bed Sunday night.
This is where I was last night before bed. I have two of the five sections complete.
I used the Cascade Greenland that I bought at Wildfiber. It's thick enough that I only need one strand. So far,so good.
