I Hate Being Poor
So we received our new patient pack from Dr. Fosters office in the mail yesterday. If I am understanding it correctly we will need to pay $250 up front for her initial visit REGARDLESS of insurance coverage. We then may or may NOT be reimbursed. We would also need to pay a $250 deposit on any tests that MAY need to be run. HOLY HANNAH! My jaw hit the floor. So I called to get some clarification. I can't seem to get an answer. I spoke with two people who had NO clue what I was talking about. The second person said she would check with her manager and call me back. That was at 9:15 this morning. By 3:15 this afternoon I still had not heard back so I called again. They have been really busy and she hasn't been able to ask. Great. Today is Friday ya know. So I am likely going to be wondering about this ALL weekend. Fanfrickintastic. DR. Foster is "in network" for us so we were expecting the normal $30 copay. Not $500!
