And this is NOT including the braces ugh!!! My husband's insurance through his work is horrid. No copays for doctor's visits. The ins pays NOTHING till we reach our deductible. that is $1500 per person. My son got sent home from school with a fever and very sore ear. He is autistic so when he says something hurts I take it serious. We are going to have to pay at least $200 for the office visit and his antibiotic was $140. We have a HSA but we couldn't put enough in it to cover all the deductibles. We had to pay $2,000 for when my daughter put a popcorn kernel in her ear last year. It seems every extra cent gets spent at the dr or dentist or pharmacy.
OK vent over LOL The only good thing is his employer puts $750 in the HSA as well so that is going to cover todays bills.
and I shouldn't complain bec my friend's son spent a month in the PICU and her after insurance bills are in the hundreds of thousands. and yes I am thankful to have insurance so I will shut it LOL
