Comment Health Insurance (Score 1) 570

I've had two doctors' offices try to turn my account over to collections. Both times it was because there was a problem with the insurance billing. I have health insurance but it doesn't help me any if there's a problem at the point of data entry. If a billing code is wrong, insurance won't pay. Both times I called the doctors' offices, spoke with the business managers, and told them I wouldn't pay until insurance did. Insurance won't pay to collections, so it magically got fixed. I'm sure I'm not the only person this happens to.

My chemistry degree got me in as a process engineer in specialty chemicals manufacturing. My starting pay wasn't as high as an engineer's, but it was definitely more than what my friends with biology degrees were making. And after a few years of experience, I've caught up to the engineers in pay range.
