Eh? What TIME is it?
Rite-Aid's asking for a legal battle
Typically, I love Rite-Aid, because they ARE negotiable on their prices and know me. However, a few weeks' ago, we discovered that I had been paying full price ERRONEOUSLY for medication that was, indeed, covered, requiring only a small co-pay. Naturally, I had to break these prescriptions in half, as I could NOT have afforded the full price on either of them. Suddenly, it's turned into this HUGE insurance problem (and Rite-Aid's fault in the FIRST place, for not running it under my insurance), and a Rite-Aid problem; which they won't accept or acknowledge. Reimbursement -- for five months' worth of NECESSARY medication -- should be in the hundreds (which is what THEY speculated -- to begin with). However, Rite-Aid is NOT accepting their financial part of the blame. Their 'refund', as it was posed to me today, was...well, pitiful. Since I realize if I accept this small bit of money, I'm accepting it legally. However, I feel I'm being cheated, and so I'm not going to 'accept' it, but rather infer that I have legal advice (of course, not many people know this -- but if you take ANY money as a reimbursement, you're 'accepting' their offer, and legally, they owe you no more). So she said she'd double check, and was working as hard as she could on it. EXCHOOSE ME...BUT THEY'VE HAD TWO WEEKS. I've already decided that I would take a serious hit because of it; I was relegated, up until today, that I'd probably only receive 1/3rd of what they owe me. But um...no. They offered me maybe 1/8th. No, no, no. Not good enough. First off, I don't WANT to take the medication to start with; my doctor INSISTS that I do. Second, the medication really seems to have no affect on me ANYway (what's done is done). Third, I had to split each of these two VERY EXPENSIVE scripts into two seperate payments. Um...I've been nesting today, and perhaps it's just PMS...or something. But they are WOEFULLY mistaken if they think I'm going to roll over and be happy about their little cut. I DON'T THINK SO. 'Nuff said about that. She said she'd call later, when she had a 'total' (this was only after I explained the legalities of accepting her offer; told her I'd love to pick up the cash that's awaiting me; but it's not enough...she gets it). I've had a great relationship WITH Rite-Aid right up until NOW. Grrrr...*thinks of a new icon to replace UPS.*
Nesting, cleaning, chaos
Ja, it's gotta be near that time. I'm nesting, straightening up, getting things organized, looking for things to do, making phone calls, gettin' busy (and not in the FUN way...grRRr). This is a precurser to the crimson wave every single month. Ackkkk. Not on my vacation week, while I'm sick! Say it ain't so. The good thing is I'm discovering new things that I'd forgotten about. I have nowhere to put them. If anyone has great knowledge about selling on E-Bay, please pass this information on to me.
They gotta go. If any of you guys are movie freaks, lemme know. If it's any good, I probably have it in one format or another.
Where is everyone? LJ is awfully quiet these days...
