Finally the Pesky Bill Gets Paid
That bill that has been haunting me, the first one that was submitted with my new insurance back in April, the one that turned from green to evil going-to-collections pink has finally been paid! And at 100%! At least that is what the insurance company tells me. I will be sure to check with the billing office to make sure.
Just as that issue is getting resolved, I have another claim that appears to be stuck in the system. The second bill was processed without a problem and I have paid my part, $1,100. The third bill has disappeared. The billing office says they are waiting to hear from the insurance. The insurance doesn't have any record of it. I am beginning to worry. This is a different billing office so I don't know how they work. They haven't sent me a bill yet. They are just patiently waiting. I don't know what happens when they get tired of waiting. The person handling my bill won't be back until Monday so I will have to wait until then.
I have an appointment for the dentist next week. I am nervous about going. Not only do I not like going to the dentist, but I am also afraid that I will have another insurance claim to drive me crazy.
