Last year’s health care spending orgy will stand another year as the fastest ever to our $2,200 deductible. J-Man’s two-day hospital visit for the norovirus vomit-fest last February assured its place in history.
That said, we’re pretty close already. We’re doing Rx roulette right now to figure out the right order to submit our prescriptions to get the least out-of-pocket costs. Once we go over the deductible, $600 medications suddenly turn into $35. Woot! (pathetic as that is…)
Thank God for flexible spending accounts. We’re essentially borrowing against future contributions into it at no interest. It’s sad that we fully expect to soak our $5,000 annual contribution to it well before the end of the year.
Next week’s autism evaluation should help that out…
