Came home to rather unpleasant news tonight - got slapped with a hefty bill ($1800) for a recent ER visit. I caught a stomach virus and was having severe vomiting (not just normal m/s) and called my doctor after I couldn't even keep down fluids, and she instructed me to go to the ER. They simply gave me an IV of fluids. No other procedures.
Now begins the first of what will surely be many calls to fight my insurance company. Sigh. Has this happened to anyone else before? Damn BCBS.
