Dentist tonight!

Whoo hoo!  Parts of my body will be removed from my head this evening!  

Spoke to my old boss on the phone.   She told me that the company was only responsible for refunding the COBRA payments that I made, that they cashed, without providing coverage and that's all they would do.  

It's really quite disappointing.  I had this idea in my head that the company, and the CEO in particular, had real integrity-- that he took care of his employees.  Now, granted, I'm no longer an employee, but the real screw up here is with both the current and prior Benefits Coordinator.  The old one never updated the policy when the company grew to comply with the law regarding COBRA.  The current one cashed my checks and never paid attention to the list of covered persons that comes with the insurance invoice every month.   The buck got passed around the office and I really feel like the only person with any compassion there is my old boss, the woman who hired me.  She went to the CEO and urged him to take care of this mess.  

So after speaking with her, I called the insurance company directly and apparently I'm in their system again.  So tonight this will be taken care of and I can have this stupid tooth fixed, and then start working on fixing up the rest of my dental issues. 


Now I can resume being incredibly scared of actually going to this appointment and having the work done.
