Your Explanation Of Benefits

Whenever one of my healthcare providers submits a claim to my health insurance company for payment, I get one or more of these “Explanation Of Benefits” emails from my health insurance company.

Since I have cancer and I am constantly at the doctor’s office or infusion facility for ongoing treatment, I get lots of these “scary” notices. They’re scary because, as we all know, the cost for any health procedure/service is astronomically high in this country.

I always cross my fingers when I click on the link in the email to read the details because it sucks when one or both parties makes a stupid bureaucratic mistake and I get stuck temporarily with a bill for hundreds or thousands of dollars. It’s a pain in the ass to get the billing straightened out – especially when I’m not feeling too well and I have to play phone ping-pong with either the doctor’s office, the health insurance company, or both. What a shitty healthcare system.
