I got a bill from the hospital, which probably passed the EOB notice in the Christmas mail -- for now I will wait till a 2nd bill shows up, or adjusted EOB. I really can't face a conversation that has to make sense to them. Trying to explain to my primary's nurse about absence of colon and meds that are extended release in the colon was, well, like naming my dashboard!
I'm assuming neither BC/BS or the hospital will ignore over $28,000 -- and my crashing depression will lift at some point. New normal being something I will have to accept. I told my husband about the dashboard, because we are forever hearing (and reading) things with a 50+ piece of brain and are quite surprised at what things are really said.
Blessings on you!
