    I was like "oh, Ötzi?"

    Definitely gained so points there. Thanks Ice.

    Didn't ask if he died in jeans, thought that might be a bit too much.

    A $6,000 MRI. Billed by four different entities, and all conveniently set up to not hit the deductible on our “good” insurance.

    Medical billing seems to be run by the mafia now.
    I'm only 10% joking. It's like it's deliberately designed to be as skanky and exploitative as possible.

    And then they always claim some kind of crazy defense. "We adhere to the law in all our billing practices."

    Yeah? Yelling the N-word at black people as they walk down the street is "following the law" too (since being a racist prick isn't against the law), but it's despicable. How is that any defense?

    Or, this - I'm not sure if it's better or worse.
    "It was covered by their insurance."

    WTF?!

    “Covered” aka they don’t charge you the extra 20% on top of the insured rate for the privilege of being too poor to have health insurance.

    There are private imagining clinics in my 'hood that do MRIs for $400-500 w/o a physician referral (https://www.taylormedmri.com/services-1). Not saying that was an option for you, just highlighting how egregious charging $6,000 for one is. That's goddam criminal.

    I got kicked off a jury panel for saying that the billing department at UC Davis Med Center was a bunch of crooks.

    I went to the dentist in Sept. Next appt always gets scheduled 6 months out when I am there. By the time that date rolls around I often I have to reschedule. Had a trip coming up so I called and they had a time slot 10 days before the scheduled appt. Now dental insurance is denying the claim because I apparently went to the dentist 3 times in one calendar year. Assholes.

    Shit could have flown to salt lake, hit an MRI and blown 2k in Wendover and still come out ahead.

    Yeah, Denver does too. Don't they have to tell you what things are gonna cost now before doing that shit? $6K is ridiculous.

    Yeah, multiple calls to insurance and imaging clinic provided zero visibility into price, or what places might have lower costs.

    So apparently not required in Oregon.

    5k for a gum graft. Sure, schedule that appointment for three months that I’ll cancel because the money hasn’t magically appeared in my bank account. False teeth here I come.

    Shit that annoys you

    I’m visiting my folks
    Today I walked in on my 80yo dad in his office on the phone with “paypal customer service” walking him through adding a credit card to his phone so he could Apple Pay three individual orders on a crypto app they got him to download. After an escalated-to screaming match with my Dad complete with Indian customer service guy assuring me he’s paypal and that the call is being recorded for safety, i got my dad to hang up. $1990 in charges averted. But now they have the boomer’s phone number; so, after i head home, god knows how my folks will be baited into giving money away.

    Multiple times during this call, my dad told me he was FIXING a scam, not participating in one.

    They called back multiple times…me yelling at him not to pick up & just let the call go unanswered.

    Egos were bruised, but we are back on speaking terms again.

    Gotta give him a few days and then have a hopefully not condescending talk with him about how to protect himself…

    (Old people, can’t leave em unattended…and I’m likely headed for the same with whatever scammers come up with in 30yrs…)

    Really was hoping to pst in the Wagon Stoke thread, but here we are:

    I ordered a brand spanking new Subaru Outback Wilderness edition back in first week of August. At the time, dealership says “8-12 week” build out and delivery. Come end of October, I start getting the “ we are sorry, please be patient, blah blah blah”. I wasn’t to stressed about it, until today. Sales rep calls, “your car is here but unfortunately suffered some ‘light’ damage in transport”…..Um, what. “Ya we need you to come look at it tomorrow and let us know what you want to do”……What the fuck, I’m paying a lot of $for a brand new car, I’d like a brand new car. He goes on to say that then we’ll have to order you a whole new one. What’s the build out time, I ask? “ 8-10 weeks” says he, without missing a beat. I am annoyed. Seriously. What says the Collective? Fuck.

    Local guy in town was recently killed in a rollover. A memorial cross was put up today with some antlers since he was an avid hunter. Less than 2 hours of being up someone stole the antlers.....wtf is wrong with people.

    I would assume they would fix for free along with a stellar discount. Though it would have to be a really good deal or I would definitely just order new again, worth the wait IMHO.
