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!

  1. YIKES!

    Hope everyone is feeling better and no one else gets sick!

    Planes, of course, are terribly dehydrating. Make sure everyone drinks a lot of water on Saturday!

  2. Jen… thanks for stopping by! I must thank the previous owner of our home for the basic layout of the laundry room… I love it! Now if I could just get it out of the basement! Thanks! Teri
