Split medical costs, insurance, and difficult BM. WWYD?
What would you do?
DH and BM have 60/40 split of medical care. INsurance deductible has not been met yet. BM does not like the insurance coverage we provide (as court-ordered we do) and is struggling financially at the moment (in her defense). DH pays her child support.
BM took SS to the urgent care in March, and signed financial responsibility. She also (sneaky) had the bill sent in HER name to DH's address (here).
DH returned the bill to her, and she gave it back to DH wanting him to pay the whole thing (and she's saying she's not able to reimburse him for her share either). See the pissing match starting?
DH reminds her that per the Order, she has to pay the bill since she incurred it, and he'll reimburse her within 30 days.
SO, BM THEN called the billing office, had them put ME as the guarantor (I'm just a SM, but am the policyholder).
So, the bill was sent again, to me (in my maiden name to boot) at our address here. For the full amount.
I just spent an hour on the phone trying to get my name off of financial responsibility, off as guarantor, paid only DH's portion, and had them send the remaining bill to BM name at HER address.
She made some hefty moves here I'd like to NOT have happen again.
