A dear colleague was recently hospitalized.
She underwent a major operation and it happened at a very bad time.
Our HMO is on the brink of filing for Chapter 11. Yes, another recession victim bites the dust.
With no assistance from our health care provider, my friend shouldered all expenses.
She has contacted our HMO several times to no avail. As to her inquiry if she can be reimbursed, this was the company’s reply: “We don’t know. We’re not sure.”
That’s scary. Imagine being in her shoes. That is certainly not a fun ride.
Moral of the story: Always save for a rainy day.
