Medical Expenses

December 16th, 2014 at 02:38 am

I had to go to the chiropractor today (that's the bad news - picked up the vacuum cleaner while twisting - ouch!). The good news is that the last time I was in, I paid in full but they submitted the claim to insurance. So I had a credit. I didn't have to pay for this visit.

The other bad news: I have to go back tomorrow. But the other good news is that I've had a version of this low back pain for a few weeks but very mild - the vacuum cleaner incident just brought it out. So now at least it's being addressed.

I'm pretty irritated that the medical category was way over this year. Even with insurance, it's just a fact of life. I'm budgeting better next year because I know that D will do his allergy shots.

I have a very low prescription cost, and I'm wondering if the doctor can give F a prescription for her allergy medicine even though it's not a prescription medication. It would cost half as much as we pay now! Also, I take omeprazole for acid reflux; if I could have a prescription for it instead of having to buy it I'd save a ton!

That is on my financial to-do list for next year... check with the doctor about medications!

    I hope you feel better soon. Back pain is not fun!

    Hopefully getting a scrip for Fs allergy medicine works better than it did for me - I tried that, and the pharmacy wouldn't/couldn't fill it.

    I was wondering about that, FrugalTexan... it might not work. But maybe the online pharmacy?

    And Creditcardfree - yes, it's not great. But it does feel soooooo much better, and I didn't have to pay for today's visit either. One more visit on Friday, and then I'm not working much next week so a lot less time in a chair (that should help!!!)
