Health Insurance Changed the Rules

November 29th, 2012 at 02:02 pm

I got a statement in the mail from my therapist office for 80. I called to find out what that was about. They said that when they filed the insurance they were told there was a 40 copay per visit. This came as a surprise to me. It used to be that there was no copay for mental health visits. After I called the insurance company I found out that as of October 1 there is now a copay for mental health visits. I wish I would have known that because I would have paid it at each visit. Now I have a bill that I will have to make payments on. And I might likely cancel my next appointment until I get the balance paid.

The eye doctor told me that my eyes haven't changed much. But they are now to the point that if we fix the far sightedness that the near sightedness would suffer. I will need to start wearing reading classes for up close things. But he said that there was such a slight change that I could go another year without changing my prescription. So in a year or so I will probably have to start wearing reading glasses. Getting old sucks.

DD still have the same prescription in both eyes so we only have to order 1 box of contacts. She also picked out frames for glasses. The frames were 90 and the lenses were 60. I didn't think that was too bad. She doesn't wear them enough to invest alot of money into them. I paid for the exams today and will pay for the contacts and glasses when I pick them up.

    Have you looked at the price comparison with on-line optical providers? It is getting more and more popular since the costs at optician's has escalated so dramatically. The e-pinions have been glowing.

    http://www.zennioptical.com/ is merely an example.

    That's too bad about finding out like that about having a new co-pay. They really should make that more up front so you know that. Hopefully your therapist's office will be willing to work with you.
