Particularly if they are on your insurance? I just don't understand how a young person trying to make their way in the world can have their entire livelihood, such as it is (lol), taken over by medical bills just from having a nickel sized cyst removedl! Ds has gotten 4 separate bills totaling over $2000 and we still don't know if the bill we got today is the last one we're going to get because they are all separate. This system is insane. He called to make payment arrangements for the $800 bill for the surgeon and thought he was doing well and then the hospital's bill came. This is outpatient, not general anesthesia and it was almost $4000 (reduced to $1025 thanks to insurance).
When you avoid using healthcare it's a shock when you HAVE to!
Anyway, griping aside, I'm just curious if your young adults who are on your insurance help pay premiums and/or their own medical bills. I WANT to help ds out but we're going to be hit with a huge bill ourselves soon. (The bill has a sliding payment scale thing for those needing assistance but you have to make $11k as an individual to qualify and he makes $16k.) I don't think there's a wrong or right answer here, just wondering how it works in other families. My poor ds' anxiety is through the roof now. LOL
