I feel like raging against the world tonight. You try to get ahead in life and as soon as things start to look up life decides you need a good kick in the teeth. That’s pretty much been my night tonight. I finally got the bill from my hospital stay back in December and it turns out that I now owe the hospital several thousand dollars. On top of that lab test that I’m still appealing with the insurance company.
I’m so fucking mad that I have several thousand dollars owed in unpaid medical bills. Like are you fucking kidding me?! There are things that I wanted to do with my life and now I have another bill every month to deal with. I have to have it paid off in two years otherwise I have to take a loan out through the hospitals financial vendor. I’m going to be calling the insurance company tomorrow to ask them what the hell was going on. Hopefully this is just a terrible mistake but very very very few things in my life actually turn out that way.
At least Aetna is no longer my insurance company though. I’m really wishing that I had switched to my employers insurance before now. I would definitely not be in the fucking mess that I am now if I was. Hindsight is 20/20 though right?
Long story short; Fuck inflammatory bowel diseases & fuck insurance companies. Also, fuck the medication that landed me in the hospital in the first place.
