I am just adding up our out of pocket medical expenses since 3/13/06 and between script refills, OTC meds and office Co-pays we have paid just under $250.00. CRAZY!!! I am just submitting this all for reimbursement from my flexible spending account. I have already spent $900.00 in medical expenses since the beginning on the year. Isn’t that crazy! I didn’t take enough out to make it through to the end of the year that is for sure. Erik’s braces alone are $89.00 a month.
Just on a healthy month with no medical appointments we have $185.00 in co-pays for monthly medicine refills. Of course that doesn’t include the $260.00 a month I pay for health insurance. Yikes!! Almost $500.00 in medical expenses a month in a healthy month.
But thank God we have health insurance……things always could be worse. It is just a huge chunk of our monthly budget.
Ok I am done whining. I am off to finish up here at the office and head home to my sick little guys!
