What the hell took you so long?

I just got a check for nearly $100 as a refund of overpayment for a medical bill . . . that I paid somewhere between 15 and 18 months ago.

Guys, if you've had my money for this whole time, why the FUCK did it take you OVER A YEAR to figure it out?!?

Health entities with their billing and such are idjits. I had a car accident in Jan of 2012. At that time I gave them the insurance information of the at fault party. they still managed to bill my health insurance company and sent back the money from the at faults party check. I am STILL trying to explain to everyone where they went wrong.

Medical billing
Eben, I just got a medical bill for a procedure my wife had over 18 months ago, and this is not the first time that this sort of thing has happened to me. It is my belief that medical billing is done by microcephalic gorillas who have been fed far too much LSD for their own good.

In your case, at least, it was money they paid to you. Deposit the check, and buy yourself a nice dinner. Relax. It will really piss off the suits.

They were hoping you'd move with no change of address filled out to the post office first.

You should be grateful they eventually paid you the overage, I discovered that Children's hospital keeps any overpayments, but they sure make sure you pay if you owe money!!! I only discovered the overpayment when I found out they create a new account for each month of services...and demanded a full accounting of all services rendered.....

It seems to me that it's actually rather creditable that they were so scrupulous as to return the money to you. A less ethical organization might have said, "It's not a lot, and it's been a long time, and he's never said anything about it; let's just let it go." Instead they cut you a check. I've got to say that strikes me as speaking well for their integrity—and for their not having been out to defraud you in the first place, which would be a much worse problem than an accounting oversight.
