Uncovered Medical Expenses
Dec. 1995 court orders state that my husband was to pay one half of all uncovered medical expenses. He had no problem doing that, when he KNEW what it was that he owed. The trouble he ran into was that his ex would not forward copies of the EOB's from her (or her husbands) insurance co, showing their share, whether they paid the rest of the claim or applied it to the deductible. His ex ALWAYS bitched about how he is not paying his share, and he would respond by saying that he can't pay what he doesn't know the amount is. For some reason, the ex believed that he owed half of what HIS insurance didn't pay. UM...NO, that's not the way the law is written.
ON Feb 27th, 2005, he finally sent an email to his ex telling her that he has not recieved all of or any of the eob's for the calendar years, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004 for the kids. He said that because of this, he has been unable to pay his portion of any uncovered expenses.
In the beginning, she would send coies of her insurance eob's 3-6 months later, when it was convenient for her, all the while writing and complaining how he hasn't paid towards these "bills." Apparently, she makes deals with the kids' provider of services, that she will pay monthly on the bill while it is being processed by claims. THAT was not my husbands deal, so THAT had nothing to do with him, yet his ex felt he should be paying as well.
SO, since she took so long, I would call her insurance to find out the status of claims for the kids ONLY. More often than not, I would be told they claims were pended waiting for some type of 2ndary information, so instead of waiting longer, and listening to the ex bitch about it, I would take care of it, no big deal....to my husband and I, but to the ex...let the email speak for itself :-)
By the way, I was never sued for ANYTHING by any of her providers, her health insurance co, or the ex herself, but she ALWAYS threatened to do so, at the drop of a dime she threatened to sue, LOL...she threatened to sue because we had information that was PUBLIC information, that could be found online, LOL...
My HUSBAND wrote back that it was hard to imagine how she keeps a job working with the public.
