Tax Refund

February 4th, 2014 at 09:41 am

Well...I did my taxes last night and efiled them. The state and the federal have both been accepted. Now it is just a matter of waiting for the direct deposit.

I am getting enough back to pay off the title loan and most of the medical bills I have. There will still be one medical bill open but I haven't even received a bill for it from the doctor yet. I am going to try to get the hospital to give me a discount for paying in full and bring that down so that I can get it paid off. I just can't wait to get this stuff paid off!

There was one lab work bill that was not a preferred provider for my insurance and they rejected what the insurance said was a fair amount, leaving me to pay $294. So I called the insurance company and they sent me a check for $259, the rest being my copay. Then I called the lab office and asked for a discount and they gave me a 20% discount. So the total I have to pay is $234. I ended up making money on this deal! Always ask for a discount. All they can do is say no.

    Wow! Making money with insurance deals, don't hear of that too often. Nice to think your title loan will be paid in full real soon! Awesome.

    That's great you will be able to get some things paid off. Do you know how much extra you will have each month once those bills are paid off? Congratulations!
