The First Shoe Has Dropped.

Referring you back to the on-going saga of my struggle to get some medical bills straightened out, I received the new Explanation of Benefits statement from Blue Cross today. The amounts and changes shown are a little bit confusing, but they appear to have made an additional payment to the hospital, which should make the hospital happy. The other shoe is whether or not it makes the hospital happy enough. The saga will only truly be concluded when the hospital acknowledges that it has received all the money it expects to get.

Even to the hospitals, insurance companies and others who are in the center of this thing, even to them it must all seem mysterious at times. The money flows, the money doesn't flow, but nobody quite knows where the spigot is.

Anyway, I am still cautiously optomistic.
