Budget and other Misc

October 30th, 2013 at 09:16 am

Well today I worked on my budget through December. I wanted to have this done because I didn't know how groggy I will be through November after the surgery. I have set up all the payments to be made automatically on November 15th and 29th. And I have direct deposit. I will just need to log on to do a transfer each payday. I think even groggy I can handle that much without screwing it up.

Dr called yesterday about the pre-op appointment. It is scheduled for November 7...and by the way bring a payment of $342. I was able to come up with about half of it and asked my mom for the other half. I knew I was going to owe either the hospital or the dr but figured they would bill me after the surgery. Oh well...at least the dr is paid and I won't get a bill from him afterward.

Took DD to the ortho yesterday for her ankle. She hurt it again Sunday night. They took xrays and there is something that the dr didn't like. That and the fact that she keeps reinjuring it and it never really heals led the doctor to order an MRI. Great. They are calling to precert the test with the insurance and then will set up the appointment. She said they are usually around $600. But we have a $3k deductible so it could be any amount up to that I assume. Hopefully they will accept payments.

DS has started making payments on his car again since he is working good again. That is really a load off of my mind and really helps me out financially.

    Medical bills are not fun, but if you both feel better afterwards it will be worth it! Did you have the furnace checked?

    Sounds like you've got a good handle of everything. It should bring some peace of mind to you while you recover. Take care!

    I haven't had it checked yet but I haven't been running it either. It has been in the off position. We changed the filter and I thought that I would go buy a carbon monoxide detector this weekend.

    Good idea to keep it off until you know it is safe!

    The last time I had an MRI and had to pay for it out of pocket because of my high deductible it cost almost $1000. That was 2 years ago. Hopefully that helps you in figuring out what you'll owe.
