So, for the three people who aren't aware of this by now, I had myself sterilized in March. Since I had hysteroscopic sterilization rather than a ligation (Essure, the trade name, is safer and more effective than having one's tubes tied), I had to go in for a follow-up HSG in June. Here follows the annoyance of dealing with Hospital's billing department. This isn't really a rant, just a minor annoyance.

Round 1: In July, I receive a bill for $343. The bill states that Hospital has not received my insurance information, which is bullshit because I provided my current insurance card at the time services were rendered. While I do have $343, I would vastly prefer not to take it out of my savings, and I would also vastly prefer that my insurance pick it up, since my sterilization met my deductible for this year and this kind of thing is the reason why I carry insurance.

Round 2: I call the billing department, only to find that they have billed my Lol-Mart insurance. I explain that I don't have any coverage through that carrier anymore and haven't done since 2010, and that they should have a copy of my current insurance card on file. They can bill my insurance or they can eat $343, whichever. I provide them with claims information for my insurance, and am told that they will file a claim.

Round 3: I receive an adjusted bill for $12.69, since Hospital has billed my insurance. That's more like it! I mail a check for $12.69. Subsequently, my bank account shows that my check has cleared. Like an idiot, I think we're done here.

Round 4: I receive another bill for $12.69, which doesn't show anything different to the previous bill. WHAT FAGGOTRY IS THIS. Lolmom thinks it's due to the nature of their billing software, which is probably set to send out bills at certain intervals, and that it just crossed in the mail.

I mean, if I do in fact owe them another $12.69, I will gladly pay it, but I would like to make sure I do in fact owe them $12.69 before I do that. I would also like this to not wind up in collections over something that isn't my fault.

I've deleted all the old entries, because a.) they're all on LJ anyway, and b.) I don't think I want to use this space for the same things I use LJ for. So we'll see what comes up.

I suspect there's going to be a lot of Fun With Words, as fair warning.
