The remainder of Zack's hospital bills were forgiven by the hospital. This was after we fought the insurance people for a while trying to figure out if he "worked enough hours to be qualified for full-coverage insurance." Mostly, we won in that regard.

Yesterday, the hospital notified us that we owed (for paperwork processing mostly), a grand total of $141. That was it. Paid off, done.

Besides a lingering ambulance company that is insisting we pay an out-of-network transport ride around $1,000, we're pretty much out of the woods with this whole ordeal.

Things have been so in the dumps lately it's hard to bounce back and feel good about good news, but I suppose I'll adapt. Laughing Sounds funny, but it's true.

Smoke a bowl and thank the Universe with me today to good fortune, and I smoke a bowl to all of you who have generously contributed to the fundraiser, my sanity via friendship/PMs/phone calls, and sincerely prayed for me and mine.

One of the biggest demons looming over us has been slain. cheers

Thank you guys, again. You have no idea how much you all mean to me, and by extension, to our family. Let's hope this is the beginning of a new direction.

Cool

Great news for sure. The health insurance systems are as complex as the tax system. Maybe even worse. It can be like navigating a minefield.

I can't thank you all enough...I didn't really want to write all of that, because I really don't like making a spectacle of my personal life. Then again, I stepped outside my "comfort zones" and asked for help (not something I do). I felt it important to give an update.

It's still sinking in, but I think I didn't give enough credit to the weight that this put on us, and now that it's significantly lessened, I can put energy toward the other life-monsters that need vanquishing. I truly hope it's a sign of things to come.

Speaking of complicated, one thing I'm thankful for--the nature of the work I do, dealing with county, state and federal land and mining regulations, it was almost a breeze to jump into health care paperwork, insurance companies, etc. I'm used to complex process, so I was tuned and primed for dealing with crap like that. You deal with the people who are involved with respect, you double and triple check paperwork, you keep organized records with checklist, and in constant contact. Frustration and anger get you nowhere fast, sometimes even works against any effort applied. Every situation being as different as it is, those ground-rules I use every day worked pretty well. I wish I had known ten years ago what I do now, when I broke my arm and didn't do it the right way. Oh well.

I hope I can now use my skills for getting ahead rather than catching up. Laughing

Came to this late, but wanted to send my best wishes, too. You deserve all the best as does this "fraternity" that I've been honored to join. What an extraordinary group of people this BoB is and has been (after searching past threads).
Truly a special group of humanity. Proud to be here through thick and thin.
