Ugh! Surgery Out of pocket cost. Boo.

DD is scheduled for ear tube surgery tomorrow AM. It needs to be done ASAP. I got a call yesterday from the ENT letting me know that the cost (after our insurance) was going to be $553.28. That is because we have a $500 deductible.

So I ran the check over there today and no sooner had I returned home when I got a phone call from the surgery center letting me know that the 20% that we need to cover was ALSO due at the time of service and I needed to bring a check to them in the AM in the amount of $283.50.

And this is all due UPFRONT. Bah! Why bother having dang insurance when you still have to pay this much out of pocket. Grrrrr!
