Can't believe I got billed. Need to Vent. — The Bump
Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Can't believe I got billed. Need to Vent.

Things have been going so crappy lately.  I had a MC, DH lost his job after 16 years with the same firm, someone hit our car, and now today - I threw my back out and got a bill for the lab work to confirm I was having a MC.

Oh, and we are due for another 20+ inches of snow starting tomorrow.  

Thanks for letting me vent.  Praying things turn around ASAP!

  • I'm so sorry for your loss.  It certainly seems like everything sucky happens all at once, doesn't it?  

    Yeah, we just got the first bill for the first couple of appointments, ultrasounds, and bloodwork.  So far we haven't been charged for the appt where the m/c was confirmed, but we were definitely charged for the lab testing the embryonic tissue that I brought in afterwards.  Yay.  Definitely hitting that high deductible this year, and the plan year is only halfway over.

  • I'm sorry you're having a rough time. I know what you mean about the med bills! I've gone in six times so far for b/w to check my levels and bills are starting to pile up. Just when we get caught up on one thing, something else hits. It seems like it never ends!

    This time I'm not leaving without you.
  • Ouch!!  I'm right there with ya.  We lost our baby 5 months ago.  During that time, we have had 3 deaths in the family.  I have had surgery on my knee and I'm about to have another one.  Meanwhile, we're struggling to keep our heads above water financially, since my HR dept. and the insurance company keep losing my paperwork for disability payments.  O and my husband is getting deployed again.  Where are you black cloud so I can hide from you and not come out for a few months??
