There appears to be some light at the end of the health insurance tunnel, which is good cause today was the day I was going to drop $1154 on health care premiums through Sinclair.
I was able to place my pod order without a problem (!! really !!), and tho our account still shows up as “inactive,” I’m told that doctors are taking and processing the claims, which will be back up to date by the time anything we do this week actually gets processed, so at least we don’t have to pay out of pocket at the hospital or get turned away.
Still paying out of pocket for prescriptions, but that wasn’t my urgent concern. The terror and sleepless nights were in trying to figure out how to come up with $1100 for my pump supplies and $3,000 for J’s twice-yearly post-cancer scan (which he was due to have last week).
We are both a lot less hysterical now, and should hopefully be sleeping a lot better. Man, what a nightmare. It’s not quite over, but it’s a fuck of a lot less urgent. It’s like the difference between wondering how you’ll survive and just wondering how many nights a week you’ll be eating ramen.
Oh, there was some other good news today, too.
As J said, “IT’S LIKE CHRISTMAS!”
