This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!
My insurance company has switched the way that it refunds money to the policyholder. Instead of using the tried and true method of referencing the situation they are refunding you for, they now require telepathy. I agree that this saves much paper but I’m having a wee bit of a problem figuring the whole thing out.
To assist myself in the process of keeping it straight, I have made an Excel spreadsheet, which shows what I have spent money on so hopefully I can match that up with what they’re sending me a check for.
The first step was remembering how to use an Excel spreadsheet. Seriously. I haven’t used one in years. I finally got everything typed in there in all my columns and all my rows when I remembered that I FORGOT how to sort by column. I called Kevin who talked me through it and then none of that worked so I figured it out myself.
I finally started matching some stuff up and I thought, “hey, I can do this” when a few things happened.
So yeah, that happened. But here’s the thing. I was partway through and that was last week and now I have to start all over again figuring it out because the new mail is mixed in with the old mail and I don’t know what’s been entered.
Ugghhh…you have to be a frakking rocket scientist (or at least a data entry expert … or at least a person who pays attention to details) to do this shit.
SOOOOOO…if you don’t here from me ever again, it means that I have fallen into the morass that is my health insurance paperwork.
Hey! I should take out some insurance on my life before I do that.
