I can hardly believe this actually happened again but it did. And it leads me to wonder just how often it happens and people don't notice.
If you remember I recently blogged about getting a large bill for prescriptions for Mom after she passed away. I ranted about it here
Things were supposedly fixed and I got the correct billing amount for February and I payed it. (After multiple phone calls). So then yesterday I got 2 envelopes from the pharmacy. I opened the first one and it showed my payment and a zero balance. Yay! Then I opened the 2nd one and it was another $200 bill for prescriptions in April. APRIL.......!
Luckily I kept the name of the rep who helped me before. I called her again and when she went looking in the computer it appears there is another lady with the same surname who lives in the same facility Mom was in. Apparently our account numbers were 1 digit off so I have been getting her bills.
Geez, can you imagine? You would think with something as important as medications in a nursing home they would be a little more careful. I wonder if Mom was still alive if I would have scrutinized the bills so close. I probably would have just payed it.
I need a vacation!
