Triple A, pizza, and medical bill worries

May 22nd, 2008 at 02:56 pm

Yesterday I renewed my AAA membership -- 14 months for $19.95, so a really good deal. (Technically I'm a new member, since I am in a new state.) I also got a pizza dinner for just the $4 I paid toward the tip for the delivery guy. My cousin paid the rest, at her insistence.

I keep getting statements from the insurance company about bills they are not covering, or not covering very much. I am not getting the actual medical bills, however -- not yet. I'm a little worried. I guess I'd better think seriously about switching to a doctor in my PPO. There aren't many of them around here, since I retired to an area far away from my place of employment. When I first came here, I just went to the same doctor other family members were already going to. Everyone in the family is crazy about her, and they'll be on my case if I switch. (They're already a little ticked off I'm not using the family-appointed hairdresser.) But nobody in my family has to live on the income I have, and they are all spendthrifts. AAWWWGGGHH!

    Unless the family is going to chip in for the out-of-network charges (or the hair cuts), then it is your decision. Smile We had to see an out-of-network doctor for my son once and our insurance didn't cover anything! Yikes.

    You renegade, you! Going to an alien hairdresser!....I've been waiting 3 months for the fit to hit the shan on medical bills, too. I can't believe how little the surgeon says we really owe, despite him not participating in our insurance plan.
