Don't f*ck with me, BlueCross/BlueShield.

 

Dear Diary.

 

I know I've had a bit of a hard time recently, but do you remember last year when I fell off a skateboard and got bitten by a rabid dog all in the same week?  Well apparently, that week has something to do with me getting an insurance bill for the rabies shots that was almost $2100.  To get to the bottom of this,  I called my health insurance company, and you'll never believe what they told me.  As I went through the itemised charges for the immunisations I had so painfully received back in October,  the nice lady told me that there were some additional charges that were overdue, something to do with a spine injury.  At that point, I remembered that I had been bitten and fell off the skateboard at practically the same time, and as I was describing this to her, she told me "ah yes, it says here that this has been deemed a pre existing contrition."  Really?  Are you kidding me?  Oh yes, I told her, you're right!  I had forgotten that I got rabies years ago and had been carrying it all this time.  I also realised, stupidly, that falling directly onto my coccyx off a skateboard onto a solid concrete floor while going roughly 100mph did nothing to my back.  It was clearly a random, excruciating pain I'd just been living with!! Talking about living with,  I did point out the irony of living with the rabies all these years when EVERYBODY WHO GETS RABIES DIES!!!   Don't f*ck with me Blue Cross Blue Shield.  I may still be in the throws of my anxiety, but I'm not taking this crap any more.  Don't even get me started on the fact that I still haven't got my car out of the shop yet...
