Yay! I’m happy that all of your bills are coming in at less than you expected. Those insurance papers would have had me panicking.

I had my tonsils out.  Ugh.  Hope you are doing well.  Best thing I ever did, but OW.

Good job!  Now spend the rest of that $1000 in your flex account because if you don’t use it, you lose it…so to speak.

I’m glad it’s not as bad as you thought.  I have had good experiences and bad experiences with insurance.  With one surgery I had back in 2008, I ended up having to pay basically all $4k out of pocket for the surgery because the insurance had a $2k in network deductible and a $5k out of network deductible and the doctor was in network but the hosiptal was not.  On my last surgery about 2 years ago, I only paid $150 out of pocket.

And I love love love my FSA account.  We just spent all the money in it for this year though because of some unexpected expenses.

That’s great.  Medical bills can be so overinflated.

@Earlybride: That was my experience too.  I made sure to drink lots of water even though it hurt like hell.  I had a little mini fantasy of getting an IV and having the demerol that I had in the hospital.  I had to do it without painkillers since I can’t take vicodin or codeine for more than a day without getting sick.  I had sinus surgery at the same time and that made me a mouth breather – drinking water hurt!

I’m glad everything is working out for you!
