Once you’re in the chair, they hold your pair
5/2/09..My alternate title for this entry was ” It’s hard to be glad when they’ve got you by the knads.
So as of today my kids have missed an entire week of school. We received the lab results back (FINALLY SIX DAYS LATER) and Hunter does not have the mumps. I could go off on a rant of epic proportions on this entire “Children’s Hospital” and the “Worlds slowest blood testing lab” but I’m not, I just don’t have the energy.
I’m just glad my lil guy didn’t have swine flu. Just for sheets and giggles at the end of all this we asked if they had tested for swine flu.
Guess what they said….NO …That my friends is just a little tidbit from a really F’ked up story.
Has anyone ever called a new Dentist, asked if they accept your dental benefits, been told they do.
Then have the work done and find out later that your dental benefits do not cover that particular Dentist? This recently happened to my family and I.
It’s an $1100.00 dental bill that should have costed me like $40.00 bucks.
The Dentist’s office informed me that when they originally called up my insurance to verify coverage the insurance company told them we were good to go.
Then when the bill was submitted they(the Dentist’s office) were informed that my current dental benefits would not cover this Dentist..
I smell something and it’s not bad breath.
This Dentist spent over ten minutes trying to convince me that I need X-rays when all I wanted was a cleaning this particular visit.
Then when I went to schedule the cleaning (all this before I knew I wasn’t covered by insurance) they conveniently had a cancellation for the very next day and I was given that appointment.
My wife and kids had x-rays taken during the visit and discussed some future dental work. I’m really glad they didn’t get their work done the next day. We have since found a Dentist that accepts our insurance.
I’m about to drop to basically one income and I can’t be paying bull sheet medical bills when I already have great insurance.
WTF do I do? Grrrrrr
Sunday morning a healthy Hunter and I are going down to Colorado Springs to visit some of my buddies and to catch a AAA Sky Sox game.
My mission is simple.
I plan to get my Daniel David Ortmeier home run baseball autographed. Maybe I can get him to write something cool on the baseball.
It was my first game home run ball and Ortmeier’s first home ball as a Rockie. David hit this home run during a Rockies/Brewers game on March 3rd, 2009 at Maryvale baseball stadium.
If you’re live in Colorado Springs and you’ll be at this game…Say Hi. I’ll be there with my Ranter Jersey on doing what I do because you know me,…”I calls em like I sees em” :)
I have to mention how cool I thought it was to see the picture of Emily and Tom I took on the front page of MLBlogs.com. I had no idea I had given Emily her first baseball.
That really made my day hearing that. It starts with one baseball then you’re hooked Emily. Just wait, you’ll see.
Laters, I need to send my ballhawk stats off to Erik at Counting Baseballs.
