They've knocked me back down to level 1 of 3, which is basically just 'your first bill', so that I'm not at risk of being sent to collections. They're going to try and bill insurance and I guess their supervisor is going to watch my account as they click through to see if that's an automated message or if someone is putting that note in by hand.
But they also gave me instructions for subpoena-ing the records via court order if need be, so :P

Finances, health insurance, YELLING
The ER billed me again this morning, so I called them like I have the last several times, and this time they said, "Oh, thanks for reaching out, we were about to send you to collections." Which is weird, 'cause my balance has been $0.00 for almost two months now. I told them about this and they put me on hold and came back to say, "My supervisor and I have been trying to figure out why every note in your record saying that you called to request that we bill your insurance is immediately followed up by a note saying 'do not bill insurance'."
So...they've been marking my bill as paid, not billing insurance, and then sending me the next rung up the ladder toward collections since October.
She saw on TV that ghosts made things cold, and she’d always had chilly feet at night.
So she found a stone with a hole through the middle and she waited under the covers until the chill made her toes curl.
Gently, she sat up, closing one eye and holding the stone up to the other.
Shimmering and thin as a beam of moonlight, the cat stretched and resettled on her feet.
She smiled and went back to bed, careful not to kick.
She’d always wanted a cat.
Finances, health insurance, mostly just ranting
Still sick! More than a week of off-and-on doziness, vertigo, and vomiting! I can't afford this shit.
Bless 'em, but I DEFINITELY can't afford my (14 years late) dental cleaning that my new dentist wants me to come in for. (~$1500-2k)
Why can't I afford these? My insurance is $1750/mo and doesn't seem to cover any of it anyway 😎
So in case you were wondering why even someone with good insurance from a tech company wants healthcare reform... :P

Made me think of @Tatianamac’s insightful talk, ‘The Banal Binary’ at New Adventures conference…
Wow! February already?! That means just about a month left in both the Acethetic and Genderful calls! Got a story about an asexual character? How about one that explores gender with anthropomorphic characters? Well, have we got the anthologies for you!
