    Well, it is Michigan State; it's not like they can brag about academic excellence.

    I have heard a few younger relations announce at gatherings, when asked about their school search, say that they were primarily interested in a prime sports scene. Not to participate in, but, to be a fan and do the weekly party thing. A school with both a top football and basketball program like Michigan State would be a top choice. And maybe they'll get laid, too.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    Dealing with a government agency (employer fucked up my state taxes) and was informed that case resolution takes 180-240 business days. Holy fuck, I know the government is not a model for efficient processes, but I straight up laughed at the rep when he told me that.

    Heh. My brother works for the IRS. You think covid was something they can handle? It took them the better part of 8 months to figure out how to work from home. And then if you think about the motivation level of an average IRS drone and yeah...
    Wait, how can we trust this guy^^^ He's clearly not DJSapp

    The good news is you won't have to cut the check for 180-240 more days. Although interest will accrue.

    Why not some beer bongs and keg stand pics on the promo?
    Yeah, that's comparable to a photo of two people who both went to MSU, met there and fell in love. It's obviously not going to be their primary marketing, but I could imagine posting a couple on Valentine's Day or something. By the same token, showing two gay men who met at MSU during Pride Month seems perfectly normal to me. Colleges and Universities need to market the entire college experience and the people you meet is a major part of that as far as I'm concerned.

    Opposite...employer withheld in the wrong state, so they are holding the return hostage until they can resolve.

    Getting billed extra by my primary care physician for a “Medical Office Visit” as part of my 100% covered annual physical and them not being able to explain what was done outside of the annual physical that kicked off that charge.

    Looks like it is time to find a new doctor.

    My wife and I just found out that we owe the hospital that delivered our baby girl in January $14k.

    We have already paid about $7k out of pocket for the delivery and related items and never received a bill or statement for any of the items on the $14k invoice. We got invoices in the mail for all of the other charges. Not even a phone call or email over the last 5 months to let us know we had a party due bill. We only found out about the balance when we logged in to our online account to pay a $200 bill for a follow up visit.

    That's annoying. Not the price, that seems fair I guess, but the surprise bill is maddening.

    I guess if I went to MSU I could have avoided this situation entirely?

    Nope. You'd be paying even more to adopt.

    Michigan rioted over the Vietnam War; MSU rioted when they banned tailgating.

    The American healthcare "system" - it fucking sucks.

    Fortunately, there's nothing that will be done, and it will progressively (heh) get worse over the rest of my lifetime.

    If I could easily/affordably sort out healthcare, I'd fucking retire tomorrow.

    We had bullshit bills when both our kids were born (at two different hospitals and with different insurance). The first time they said the anesthesiologist was out of network (as if we had a fucking choice). The second time they saved part of the bill until the following year when our deductible had reset. My wife went on the warpath, making people cry and question their career choices. Zero dollars were paid.

    Make some phone calls. Be hard to deal with. If the charges are questionable and you're a pain in the ass you likely won't have to pay.

    And that's definitely a feature, not a bug.

    Yep, no other industry is like healthcare or "sickcare". Nothing, if anything, done to promote preventative care because that doesn't have any reimbursements associated with it.

    NO OTHER BUSINESS (both dental and medical) could you go for service that you don't even know what you are going to be charged from the get go. Ask for a price and billing departments just give patients a fucking run around goose chase. Pisses me off to no end.

    I sometimes get the brunt of the frustration from the patients themselves expressing displeasure in not knowing how much they will owe.

    Not true at Kaiser for most people. They get paid per patient per month, regardless of the care provided, so they have a strong incentive to do preventative care.

    A federal law may solve the surprise bill problem starting next year.

    This - and if it continues to go sideways - complain to the state insurance commissioner. I had a crazy billing issue - but for trivial dollars, compared to $14K. The insurance commission thumped that problem in the nose hard. Never heard a peep about it after that.

    Insurance companies and providers really don't want to tangle with the insurance commissioners office. Plus, by the time they wrangle their way through the paperwork and scrutiny, it's probably easier to go after someone else - low hanging fruit and all that.

    Highly recommend.

    Even preventative seems exploitive.

    Colonoscopy, so they wrote me Rx for the prep. $170, I later discover. I inquired back to Dr Office if there's a common sense alternative. They use text for these inquiries LOL.

    "Yes, we sell some stuff for $20 at our office". I google it and it becomes obvious it's all OTC, but rebranded as a convenience pack. But they're also texting me that (exact same but self-assembled LOL) OTC is insufficient.

    Now, who cares re $20, but does this also make it obvious they have a kickback arrangement with the $170 Rx scheme?

    I could just say nextdoor.com and leave it at that, although it can be amusing and useful at times. In any event, nextdoor used to have a section that said "for sale and free", it was a tab on the left side of the screen. Pretty simple, right?

    I have one thing listed, today I was going to update the listing, and couldn't find the for sale section. Well, apparently some genius at nextdoor thought that it would be better to not have the words "for sale and free" and instead have the word "finds". It has a little sale tag icon next to it which is the only way I deduced that it might be where the items for sale are. WTF? That's annoying.
