I got the mail today and there was another medical bill. This one is from the lab. I am pretty sure I saw this bill already processed by my insurance but they must be slow on sending the actual checks. Looks like after 30 days the office or lab sends off the bill to the patient just in case. I think I will wait for the second notice on this bill too. I don't have $330 that I can have tied up in limbo waiting for the bills to figure themselves out.
And now, after I am almost finished with all of my medical visits (only 2 follow-up visits left), I got an email from human resources today. They are changing our insurance provider. No more PHCS. As of October 1st, I have Cigna. I looked up all of my doctors to see if they are on the preferred provider list. My dermatologist who was out of network before is now in network! Yea! At least I think it is a good thing. I got a great cash discount before. I guess it will depend on how much of my deductible I have left when I need another skin cancer removed. One of my other doctors was not on the list. Bummer. I have to start the search again for that one. Luckily the general practitioner that I waited so long to see is on the list so I don't have to find a new one of those. I am glad they decided to change and I hope I get a better reaction from the front desk when I show them my insurance card next time.
