Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Got the first bill yesterday.
It said if I can't pay the whole thing, to call their office to set up a plan.
The bill was for US $1.93
New So are you going for 24 or 36 payments?
New Inflation is getting out of hand.
Regards,
-scott
Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New Glad to hear it! (Though surprised as fuck.)
And, you know, also not terribly sad or angry that you're feeling better.

New Oh, there will be more bills, but . . .
. . the way Medicare works is this. The doctor or organization bills Medicare at their full rate. Medicare pays them what they pay for the coded procedures. The patient can then be billed only a percentage of the difference between the two.

I recently got another bill for $8.87. The full charge was $1280. I will certainly get some larger ones, but it should be all manageable.
New The big hospital bill finally got here.
Hospital charge: $171,718.01

After Medicare payment and Medicare adjustments, I have to pay $1,556.00 - somewhat lower than I was expecting.
New Wow. It's good to be old.
I don't go to the hospital. I don't have health insurance. I don't have a job and up until a few months ago I couldn't afford it and now I'm looking into it and I see how incredibly expensive it is. I'm 58. I have another 7 years before I can have Medicare.

So basically it seems that I have to survive another 7 years before something comes along and tries to kill me and then I might survive because I'll have insurance at that point.

I added the second car to my insurance yesterday and it was incredibly cheap. I laughed, it's good to be old. It's also good not to have new drivers on your insurance. Those kids cost me in so many ways.
New I'm the same age, but I've been "on MediCare" all my life. Hooray for the Nanny State!
