It’s always exciting to
spin the great postal wheel in the sky check the mailbox these days. I get to play a little guessing game. How many insurance statements will I find? How many hospital/doctor bills?
Today’s tally: 2 insurance statements, 3 bills.
That brings this week’s total to 7 statements and 5 bills, and there are two more days left.
This isn’t actually a particularly high weekly total, at least not for the insurance statements. When I was going through my daily interferon infusions last year, every single visit was a statement, every blood draw and lab test was its own statement, and every person who read my chart or who said “hi” to me resulted in yet another statement. I was getting 8×11-sized envelopes from my insurer stuffed full of statements, up to 10 at a time, multiple times a week.
The bills however… well, thankfully, last year my insurance covered more. I fear the bills have yet to reach their peak.
