    NEVER pay a healthcare bill until after you have received the EOB AND a new adjusted balance-due from the provider.

    Good luck on that, catherine. I would tend to think that they would most likely give you a credit towards that particular doctor's bill instead of a refund, per se. Although if you used a credit card to pay they might credit back the card. Keep us updated on that.

    That's what I do with my Mom - although between Medicare and her MHBP from my stepfather, lots of times she ends up having a zero balance. She has the AARP prescription plan for drugs and since she had to go into rehab with her hip replacement and her aneurysm, she has qualified for Extra Help from SS for her drug co-pays. Medicare covered 100% for the first 21 days o each of her rehab stays, but I had to apply for Medicaid for her to pay for the rest of her rehab costs.

    Nice! Meeting Ms. Freeman must be like me meeting Steve Wozniak (one of the founders of Apple; can't meet Steve Jobs anymore). A memorable day...

    (ETA upon rereading I've never met Woz. But I imagine the feeling would be the same and it would be a memorable day.)

    If Americans expended even a fraction of the energy on civic engagement that we spend on consumer ideology, our democracy would be much healthier. Can you imagine people camping out to vote? -- Charles Roberts, Amherst, Mass., Nov. 25, 2006

    Well, this is prime flower show season. This recent win was just a class win, it was not the best in show. I did get a special award for a species lily I grew and I will post a photo of it tomorrow.

    Yesterday I drove home to cut lilies for the horticulture show and I found that someone had reached through our fence and snapped off a lily which I had planned to take to the show. I didnt have another stem of that cultivar. That was a bummer! I do have a plant theft each hear but it has never been a blue ribbon show entry, usually they take items I dont care about.
