Medical Debacle Update
No, I hadn’t forgotten. I have just had my mind on other things.
After receiving the COBRA letter, I drafted correspondence to the staffing agency to follow up on the situation regarding my insurance coverage, which got forwarded to the proper people.
I got a brand new story that my insurance ended in January, rather than February. However, when I went to my doctor’s appointment in January, it still came up in the system it was valid.
I was given the option to either sign back up with the insurance, although in their records, they claim to be behind in premium collections, or I could decide to leave the insurance be, and they could reimbursement for all the premiums that were deducted from my paychecks in February and March.
After the debacle, I opted to just get my money back. I don’t want to have to deal with walking into an office, not knowing whether my coverage is going to be gone next time I’m in there. It’s just too risky. If I am paying out of pocket, I know it will be taken care of.
I’m waiting on delivery of the check.
If the check doesn’t make it, then you will probably see an update of this update.
