As my lovely readers may have figured out, things have been a little less than rosy around here...
I can't really say it's lookin' up.
Monday, I got a notice from Medi-Cal that my Share-of-Cost coverage was terminated as of the 1st of October.
Ummmm, come again?!
I have a SURGERY scheduled on Friday. THIS FRIDAY.
Immediately filled with the urge to vomit, I tried not to panic. There's was nothing I could do until the next morning...
My fervent hope is that I would call Medi-Cal and it would all be some silly misunderstanding...
Ooops! "Silly Us!" They would say.
My insurance is canceled. As I am no longer pregnant, O is no longer an infant and I happen to be married, we no longer qualify for squat.
Our income is "too high" (tell that to our bank account) and we are an "in-tact" family, therefore ineligible for aid.
Since when is being a stable family a bad thing?
It is in the eyes on Medi-Cal.
I was able however, to skim under the radar somehow, and since my surgery was already approved, it will be covered with the $2000 co-pay.
BUT, any medical care costs or anything related to the surgery/post-op that occurs AFTER the 31st of October will be our responsibility 100%.
Please cross your fingers for me that the surgery goes smoothly and is laproscopic, so it can be considered an out-patient procedure. If they have to go in all Mash-style, I'll be laid up in the hospital for a few days, and we don't have that kind of scratch....
Hey, did I mention that we also need a new car? SchWEET.
PS. O's Birthday Bash was Fab! I will post as SOON as I get all the pictures!
