From my LJ, August 22, 2008:
Dear Hospital.

PLEASE TO BE SENDING ME MY BILL BEFORE SENDING IT TO COLLECTIONS

And NO, sending it to me, then two collections TWO WEEKS LATER doesn't count.

Yes,my procedure was in April. But you did not send me those imaginarystatements in May or June...I know, I checked...I don't have them.

So, no thanks for the collections notice, but thanks for recalling it and actually giving me time to pay.

k. thanks.

From Now:
Dear Hospital.

PLEASE TO BE SENDING ME MY BILL BEFORE SENDING IT TO COLLECTIONS

And NO, sending it to me, then two collections TWO WEEKS LATER doesn't count.

Yes,my procedure was in AprilMay. But you did not send me those imaginary statements in May or Junea statement until AUGUST...I know, I checked...I don't have them.

k. thanks.

I also assume that you didn't send the bill to the insurance company until August as well. 2 problems now: 1) it takes a month for them to pay you (and you by then are sending me to collections) and 2) MY INSURANCE WON'T PAY ANYTHING MORE THAN 180 DAYS OLD!!! So, while the labwork managed to slide in under the wire, I am being told by my insurance that the $70 charge for...the tech or lab person or whatever, is all mine to pay. Please to be doing your jobs in a timely manner, and not to be messin' with my credit score, k thanks. Fuckers.

Maybe health care reform should include streamlined claim submission and a timely submission requirement.

What a bunch of assholes.

appeal the insurance decision. seriously. the appeal is your friend. might require a letter or there might be an online form or a print out form.

Ehh...now the hospital is saying I only owe them $35 (which is my copay)...even though they haven't sent me an actual bill with that amount on it...we'll see.
