Disaster strikes again

March 11th, 2008 at 02:42 pm

Last wedn. I had to take my DD1 to the ER. She was having pains in her lower abdomen and throwing up. They ran all kinds of tests and concluded she had a severe UTI that spread to her bladder and kidneys. She spent 2 days in the hospital being pumped full of antibiotics through an IV. The first day we were there a rep. from the hospital came to tell me that my hospital admission co-pay is $250 per day for the 1st three days and guess what???? I work for that hospital!! (well the smaller urgent care clinic associated with it.
I gave her a check for $250 and told her that they could payroll deduct the rest. The cafeteria food was terrible so I did end up buying food for us from the cafeteria but I did get a 30% discount. She is home now and doing very well.

    BA it's a Urinary Track Infection - otherwise known as a bladder infection (the curse of all females). That was an expensive one; I've never heard of anyone being hospitalized by one; must have been severe. That copay is outrageous; is there any state supplemental insurance you would be eligible for? In my state they have health insurance for consumers starting as low as $60 a month.

    Well fortunately dd1 is much better. She did have a very severe infection. As for the insurance it is through my employer. I pay $300 month for our family of four. Our co-pay for the doctor is $25, a specialist is $35, ER is $100 and hospital admission is $250 per day.
