Expensive health day

April 7th, 2009 at 02:11 pm

I've been putting off several medical bills because I'd requested a replacement Visa card for my Health Savings Account and wanted to pay them directly from there, rather than going through the annoying reimbursement process. Card finally arrived, so I'm paying a bunch of bills today:

Allergy specialist: $15.00
Allergy specialist: $126.87
Dentist: $7.00
Emergency room: $256.32
OB/Gyn: $94.12
Urologist: $94.78

Total: $594.09

I checked my HSA (which doesn't fully fund at the first of the year like an FSA; you build it gradually with each paycheck) and I have $750.33 in there, so I can cover all these bills.

I have other health expenses from this year that I paid cash for, so as soon as I build up some more money in the HSA I'll get those reimbursed.

Phew! I'm so glad I put the maximum in the HSA--my small health problems are quite expensive under my work's new high-deductible plan.

    I had never had the chance to read your goals on the sidebar. You sound like an amazing person! I have thought about volunteering for a charity, too, but get so busy. My grandma is at UK and has terminal cancer right now, so things are a bit overwhelming.

    Thanks Sicily! Unfortunately, my intentions to do good are better than my follow-through--but I hope my monthly goals will help me do better this year.

    That's cool about your vegan cookbook! Be sure to let me know when it's available--I'm always on the lookout for more cookbooks.
