Insurance Headaches

July 7th, 2022 at 01:40 pm

As we transition from my university insurance to my DH's, I'm again grateful for how good the state insurance was/is.  The pay was certainly awful, but great coverage.  I spent half yesterday filing for my accumulated sick leave to be escrowed towards future insurance in what can only be described as a blizzard of paperwork.  But I've filed for it, and I'll have to wait 7-10 days to see whether they've accepted it.

In other news, I've spent all my remaining FSA cash on new glasses.  Happy I could use it all, but man alive, glasses are expensive.  Now we have to learn an entire new bewildering insurance system with DH's insurance.  And their wellness incentives seem absolutely crazy.  Do I want his employer to have access to my fitbit and phone?  Grrrr.

DD had another allergist appointment as we try to squeeze every last doctor appointment into the next month and a half.  I've booked her also at the dentist and eye doctor. 

More on that front as we progress!

    I hear you on the glasses. I wear no line; progressive bifocals and I cringe every time I have to get new ones! I might try getting them on-line next time, I have heard people say they are way less expensive and pretty easy to use.

    You are so right about the glasses. Like Wink I have the no line bifocals and because of my skin irritations, buy titanium frames and just those two things jack the prices up.

    Hope you can find some good in the insurance you now have; I would be a little wary of letting the company have access to Fitbit info.
