BM Tried to pull a fast one for $$$
Oh she thinks she's soooo smart. I'm thinking that she's hurting for money lately because she's called at least once a day for the past several days demanding BF pay her for supposed medical expenses of SS's. She even had the gall to email me and say that BF had better bring the $xxx he "owed" her for the medical expenses if he wanted to pick SS up for visitation.
Now would be an appropriate time to point out that SS is on governmentally-funded insurance and has virtually NO medical expenses besides the occasional copay.
Also, BM fails to mention that in the parenting plan, while it does outline that they are to split medical expenses 50/50, it also states that BF only has to pay his half if he is given a copy of the receipt for the expense within 10 days. To date she has given BF NO receipts.
So when BF went to get SS the other day for visitation, BM hands him this paper with a whole bunch of garbage on it. At the bottom she had written out this little formula, this divided by this equals this, which is how much you need to pay me. BF just told her "This is NOT a receipt." and walked off. I was thinking about it, putting it all together in my head, and I got an inkling about just how legitimate all of these supposed expenses were.
When I read the paper a little more closely, I saw that it was an insurance benefit printout dated from 2005 to present. She rounded up all the charges that the INSURANCE had paid this entire time and tried to claim that BF owed her half of the total. Uh, excuse me? Does she think he's stupid? Not to mention that if he didn't get a receipt for something in 2005 until now, he's under no obligation to pay it. Regardless, she didn't pay for it anyway, her insurance did!
My guess is that SS's medical expenses are next to nothing and she doesn't keep up with receipts because she hardly ever has to pay anything. BUUT she's needing cash..and she knows that if she claims these insurance benefits to be out-of-pocket medical expenses BF might be stupid enough to believe her no questions asked and think he's obligated to pay half. I just can't believe that she would try to pass off things that her insurance fully covered as things that she had paid for out of pocket to try to get money out of BF! She never ceases to amaze me...
What amazes me even more is that this has nothing to do with SS's health or well-being. The only reason she's asking for this money is because she's broke and thinks she can milk BF. The only other time she's ever brought up medical expenses was when she was strapped for cash and thought BF would help her out - but even then she failed to produce any receipts and even tried to claim her gas in her car to be a medical expense. It seems pretty simple to me...you want money? Give us a receipt! Sheesh!
