Side Gigs, Med Bills

December 19th, 2018 at 06:25 pm

Tonight I participated in an online discussion focus group. It took a little over an hour, and I'll get $50 in a few weeks.

I applied to be a Shipt shopper several months ago. As of today, I am officially one! I should be getting my package soon with my materials. Hopefully this will be a decent source of side money.


I paid several bills today, and called the place with the largest bill. I asked what kind of a discount they could offer for paying in full. None. When I asked why, I was told we'd already been given a discount. Um … that was what you gave the insurance company, not us!

So … now deciding how I want to pay it. Just min payments for a few months, then pay the remainder at the last possible minute (to take advantage of CC spend bonus) or just bite the bullet.

    Over years I've come to appreciate paying in full. Hard to watch the balance fall, but satisfying to pay what is due and not think anymore about it.

    With Liberty Health claiming my husband had cancer "symptoms" before 1/1/18 when we became covered, the hospital gave us a 55% discount for paying in full.

    Then today some company called and said they would help me get some of the money back from Liberty Health. I am very confused, but if it is real, I will do it.

    I am appealing their decision since getting up to pee in the middle of the night in older men is very common.
