Insurance Woes Are OVER
Sorry to be missing in action for so long, but this insurance thing really knocked me around. On the advice of an attorney, I made one more call to Kaiser to ask a very specific question and, by God's grace, just happened to have my call land with a wonderful woman who was appalled at what was happening. She took it upon herself to crusade on my behalf as much as she could and she started a ball rolling that finally got to the right people. I mean it went right up the ranks with lightening speed and she called me personally to let me know that things were looking good. However, I waited to announce it today on my blog because I needed to have the confirmation letter in my hand to assure myself that this was all real.
So, my darling daughter now has exactly what she should have gotten in the first place. It's dated as starting on the day of her adoption, but I will begin paying from July 1 onward. The amount I pay per month, called the premium, is a mere $89, added to my current rate of $198. A very far cry from $1,186.54 per month, plus what I pay for myself.
I'm still traumatized by all of this and I'm waiting for the relief to wash over me, only I know it means starting the hardcore medical stuff now for Jie Jie.
