OK, I'm very, very confused, shocked, and quite frankly, disgusted.
I just received a statement from the Masonic Cancer Center. You know, one of those things that they send that tell you how much everything costs and how much your insurance paid towards it. Through an insurance snafu, it appeared that I did not have coverage for the month of June when, in fact, I did. Because of that, MCC is sending me a bill for my last chemo treatment and the Neulasta injection. That is not what is so shocking (as it will be straightene
My first question: why on earth is Neulasta so ridiculousl
My second question...
The total for ONE TREATMENT is over $10,000. Actually, it's closer to $11,000. That doesn't include oncologist visits at almost $200.00 per visit. Multiply that by twelve (because I received twelve treatments)
OK, I just had to rant about that for a bit.
Ted will be home on Saturday. It will be nice to have him back. Today, I went to help out with the field biology class trip (the stuff I normally do). It was fun, even though it was HOOOOTTTT! It touched 90 briefly today, but it's been in the upper 80s for the most part.
Last weekend, I went up to the Disabled Veterans Rest Camp (where Ted is doing his two weeks) for their barbecue. I was able to meet some of the people in Ted's unit, and everyone seemed very nice. I was also able to see one of my good friends Cody, whom I haven't seen in a long time. It was nice to just relax with everyone in that beautiful camp, and to catch up with my friend.
Well, I'm going to go ponder our healthcare system over a Gatorade. I hope everyone is doing well and staying cool!!
