…HA digresses, but don’t you love those Estimate of Billing things that come from the insurance company…the ones that say, “Your charges were $11,323, but we are going to toss your hospital $1,222 and call it a day?”
…Anyhow, now comes the neat news that Kaiser Permanente is offering credit cards with $5,000 limits to customers in Hawaii and Colorado—and soon, California. Just pay with the card (the whole amount, thank you, come again).
…Oops, interest is up to 23%! That ought to teach those heart patients.
…You know what HA loves? The new practice at her local Emergency Department. While you are lying on the gurney clutching your guts, a nice lady comes over and sees if this is a good time to render your copay.
…Could you come back or bill me? Step back!!! Ooops! Sorry ‘bout that.
