Yesterday I sat down to pay bills and here is a bill for $317.00 for my last infusion. They told me it would be over $400.00 so $317.00 was nicer. But remember how I sat across from a very nice woman at the infusion center, who was an internist and her husband was a surgeon? I was complaining about the cost of these medications and I am well insured. She asked if they had given me a Orencia card and I said no. She seemed puzzled. So yesterday before I wrote the check, I called the doctor and asked the billing office about this card from the drug company that wold pay for part of the drug, which alone was $3000.00. I told them in a nice way that I thought a state worker who made $29,000 last year with an income tax statement to prove it would qualify over an internist and a surgeon. Well I do qualify and they are sending me forms which I will fill out and they will back date up to 45 days. So we are in a crunch, but I am sure we will make it! Yippee! They will pay what ever the insurance does not pay. I am $317.00 richer. Okay I don't have to pay the bill but $317.00 richer sounds good!
Next month is going to be tight. I have all the bills for March slated to be paid. I also sent out notes to all parents yesterday and will continue to do so throughout the week. I told them that although we do not have dance next week, tuition was still due. They could mail it or make sure to pay it on time. Well 5 of them paid early! Now I don't expect people to pay early, lord knows I could not have but at least they are aware that I am not going to allow them to pay late.
I have to go to the CU to do cash counts today. So I am off and then will come home and sew before I leave for the studio. Oh yes and I had better look at my kitchen it is a wreck!
Out My Window: I think it is going to be sunny today! cross my fingers!
Have a great and productive day!
