So here's a funny story.

I'm already on the hook for about $4k from my surgery. $1k deductible, plus another $2.5k maximum co-insurance (70/30), plus the various office fees and copays for labwork and prescriptions.

Then I get a bill from a name I don't immediately recognize for $1.8k today. Look up the physician's name, and check my BCBS account. Turns out the assisting surgeon that my primary surgeon selected is out-of-network for BCBS, so BCBS denied his claim and now he's billing me directly for the full amount.

Gonna be on the phone for a while tomorrow, I predict.

It's funny. After making an account on on the Greek sites and reading around the other forums, I've noticed that we are seriously behind in making power. It's completely common to see 500-600whp B6/BP cars on those forums.
Is this 'Merkin horsepower or some sort of queer euro horsepower that gets measured differently?

That is the right turbo. He's at 15psi and 340whp, that turbo has another 20psi to go. I will swap a S200sx for my Holset sometime later. I'd love to have his powerband.

Same as ours. Take a look at the Greek forums and you will see some ****. There is a new build on there of a GTX30 BP car that just broke 600whp.

Ugh. That's a pretty facked situation. Even if you tried to be a good consumer of healthcare, who would have thought of that?

Good luck.

Sure thing. Some of them post on the MT facebook, too. That's how I found out about Miatajunkies.gr but it took like 3 months for them to activate my account and the google translate isn't that great.

Resolved!

The stupid automatic billing system sent me the notices but I'm not expected to pay. The surgeon knew that BCBS would likely refuse the full claim and only pay a small portion. They are waiting to see exactly how much BCBS will pay me to cover that bill, then they will waive the rest.

Yet another connection between my current life, and the timeline of my past. Ever since I was like 10, ferris buehlers day off was my favorite movie. Years later I am introduced to Deftones, and they would go on to become my greatest band of all time. I recently bought the Deftones album "Rarities and B-Sides". There is a song on there called "please please please let me get what I want".
Let's go back in time now.
The instrumental song in the museum scene in Ferris Buehlers Day Off was also that song.
This is how my alcohol infused thoughts work, and that, my forced inducted friends, is how a ramble is done.

Why is it that many people cannot leave a microwave to run its full alotted time - a time that they input in the first place? I am always seeing the microwaves in our office kitchen with a random number of seconds left on the timer.

i.e. Someone puts a dish in for 2 minutes but pulls the dish out in 1:43.

And then they don't have the decency to hit "clear" and allow the clock time display to do its job. Sheesh.
