Tricare/ Therapy Thursday…Thank God for insurance!


So, I am guilty as the next gal of complaining about our insurance.  Maybe we get too much junk mail from them, it takes too long to get a reply back when I send an email, I spend a lifetime on hold, etc., etc., etc.  But the truth is, my kids wouldn’t be anywhere near where they are without the therapy they’ve had.  And to continue being honest, there is no way my husband and I could have afforded that therapy without the insurance we have.  Here is one bill that covers a one-month period for just one of my boys, for just one of the types of therapy they receive.

The amount billed to the insurance was the $955. Our co-pay was $45.

We got another bill recently for both boys for their ABA services the entire time we lived in Arizona (about 8 months or so).  The total was almost $20, 000. 00  Seriously.  Like I said above, even if I went back to teaching and somehow had three jobs, we couldn’t cover that.  So, I’m taking this as a wake-up call and reminder to be thankful for our insurance.  I’ll try to keep it in mind the next time I’m on hold for eons.
