Today was a slow day but the week is over now and that is all that matters. I got another health insurance claim statement in the mail. I am figuring out that office visit charges are the main things that aren't covered by the plan until the deductible is satisfied. I owe another $200. That is disappointing, especially since I went back to the doctor today for a follow up appointment. Is that going to cost me another $200? Probably. I don't have any more doctor's appointments scheduled and I hope I don't have any surprise visits either. If I don't have any more charges then I will have fulfilled $900 of the $1,000 deductible. I was hoping the insurance would apply the money I paid for the out of network dermatologist towards my deductible. No such luck. That means I under-budgeted by $700 so far for medical expenses.
I was reading The Consumerist website and they had a link to a little cartoon about the housing crisis. I thought it was cute.
NPR's Toxie the toxic-asset It is about Toxie, the toxic asset, how she came to be, what she did and how she died. Touching, really.
And because it is Friday, here's a link to a music video by OK GO, called White Knuckles. It has doggies in it! And they are donating some of the profits to animal rescue. It made me smile.
