This afternoon I saw my ophthalmologist. My left eye had been bothering me for about a week but I kept putting off calling the doctor. There is some inflammation and edema. He prescribed two eye drops and told me to return in a week.
In today’s mail I received a letter from my insurance provider stating that I have reached my maximum out-of-pocket payments of $4,900.00. For the rest of the year I won’t have to make any co-payments to my doctors. That’s the good news; the bad news is that my budget has had to take a big hit to reach this maximum. I should get at least one reimbursement from today’s visit. Maybe 2015 won’t be quite so expensive for me.
