Is anyone else in just a horrible crappy spot financially? I hate it so much. It seems like no matter how hard we work or try to dig out, there's something waiting at every turn to screw us.
All the stupid bloodwork they had me do is going to cost me $500 because my insurance company claims that it was done outside an OB office and therefore doesn't count as "prenatal care." Even though the explanation of benefits says MATERNITY all over it. And half that stuff was totally unneccessary. I don't have HIV or any other STD, I don't have sickle cell anemia, I am not concerned about toxoplasmosis, and the fricking Red Cross types my blood all the time. I know my damn blood type but now I get to pay $100 for that alone.
I'm sorry, what would any reasonable person think when looking at their benefits and seeing that prenatal care is covered 100%? When the doctor orders blood tests I stupidly assumed that was prenatal care. It's horse s*** and shady, is what it is.
What do we pay these people over $500 a month for if they're just going to pull crap like this? We aren't eligible for any kind of assistance because my husband grosses too much money. They don't care how much gets taken out for taxes/insurance/401k, and no one cares that we have student loans, medical bills, and credit card debt up the wazoo. I'm so sick of this garbage.
I can't wait to see what having another kid costs us in the end.
