SENT EOB

Keith was sending J an EOB for services rendered on 4-6-97 for one of his kids.

I added a note to it-

“Hi J-

Please contact (Provider of service) at 800-***-**** and give them your insurance info so they may bill them for services rendered. Account # is *****. Thanks, Patricia”

After Care Instructions

“Hi J-

Hope this note finds you all doing well.

I am sending a copy of the “after care instructions” as well as a copy of the RX receipt we got for N on 4-6-97.

We have credited ourselves the $4.82 for the RX. these enclosures are for your records.

This is all for now-take care- Patricia”

Reasons

“Hi J-

Sorry it has taken a few days to get back to you.

From what I understand, you asked Keith to speak to me regarding the reason’s we need copies of the EOB’s from your insurance company.

The simplest way for me to explain it is this- When we receive your copy, we attach it to the EOB we receive from our insurance company so we can keep our records updated as well. This way, when you send letters updating past due balances, we can compare the figures intelligently and not blindly, since we have something to compare it against. I am sure you understand this. Also, I know you have questioned his reason’s for requesting this information and we believe he has explained his reasons in his declaration written Nov. 21, 1995 (page 2 #6) as well as in his letter to you dated June 12, 1996, June 16, 1996 and July 1, 1996.

If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to write… or call.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Patricia (last name)”

EOB’S

I wrote the Ex a letter because she has asked my husband to speak to me regarding the reasons we needed copies of the EOB’S from her insurance company. I told her that the simplest way for me to explain it was this way: “When we receive your copy, we attach it to the eob we receive from our insurance company so that we can keep our records updated as well. This was when you send letters updating past due balances, we can compare the figure’s intelligently and not blindly, since we have something to compare it against.”

I went on to tell her that I am sure she understood this. I told her that I know she has questioned his reasons for requesting this information and that we believe he has explained his reasons in his declaration written Nov.11, 1995 (page 2 #6) as well as in his letters to her dated June 12, 1996 and July 1, 1996.

I told her if she had any further questions to please don’t hesitate to wrote or call. I thanked her for her time signed it, “Sincerely,” and my name.

Receiving EOB’s from her had ALWAYS been an issue. She wanted to just be able to tell him what she thought he owed her and he should have just paid according to her. Fortunately, it doesn’t work that way. SOME ex spouses may be able to handle medical expenses that way, not this one.
