We’ll take care of that. Don’t worry about a thing.
Hmmm. How many times have I heard that in my life? Several. Many just recently.
A word to the wise, and I know I’ve said it before: take care of your own business. Follow up and follow through.
Cases on my radar this week:
1) Getting my FMLA leave paperwork ready for the new school year should I need it. There’s a lot to know about that, by the way.
I’ve learned a lot through my own research. I’ve also contacted my teacher organization for additional info. That’s a very good reason why teachers join those organizations—they track down answers.
No matter how “nice” you think your employer is, be proactive. Get answers on your timeline. Know your rights.
2) Clarifying billing statements from the hospital. No one should be surprised to learn that I’ve already noted wrong dates of service, questionable billing issues. My husband’s insurance sends EOBs only if requested.
How else can I be sure we are paying what we are supposed to pay? Exactly…
3) Correcting my husband’s medical record. Always, ALWAYS request medical records and itemized statements. When I was reviewing notes, I found a glaring error that will be corrected. What’s odd is that my husband and I communicated the issue to several medical personnel throughout that particular stay. Interesting how it is not correctly documented. Does it matter? Yes.
Because it is not correct. It is not a matter of life and death, but it is a matter of ethics. And it will be corrected, I assure you.
So, looks like an extra busy few days shaping up. That’s OK.
We’ll take care of it. Don’t worry.
