Insurance Sillyness...

So, having a seizure for which my hubby and mom had to call 911 falls into the category of "the condition treated does not meet urgent care guidelines".

Umm -- if not breathing doesn't meet such a guideline what the f does?

No, we won't be paying the $9,516.26 it cost -- really we won't...

Update --- they aren't as silly as I thought -- just behind on paperwork! YEA!!! A phone call to a nice guy in the insurance office told me they processed it a second time and paid it!!

Stay tuned about the next two ER visits... that paperwork has yet to hit my mailbox.
