Just a short blog this time 🙂 Wanted to share this experience that actually happened over two years ago when my husband suffered a stroke. Click HERE to Read the blog I wrote about his Stroke as well the FUNNY event that took place during that time. Read about Strokes HERE and the American Stroke Association
After all was said & done, we got a bill in the mail from the ambulance company…. Somehow payment (via Insurance was declined – The reason being: “Non-necessary Emergency Transport.” Our first reation was WTF??!!! Not necessary. A college age kid who lifts couches by himself couldn’t get my husband out of bed & into his chair. it took 3 or 4 paramedics/firefighters to get husband into chair and out to the stetcher…. Ohhhh and his BP was 250/150 and he was diagnosed with a hemmorhagic (??) type stroke…. Yeah right – Emergency Transport wasn’t necessary??!! I remember something being said about the fact that he wasn’t brought in w/ lights & sirens (something about not causing further upset or something) being the reason it was declined.. There was also something about the wrong code being entered in for billing.
