A $3,679.10 Tender Mercy
Yesterday I needed to pay my co-pay so I was going to use my credit card from my Health Savings Account that I have had for years from when I worked for PEMA, but it didn't go through because the card was expired. At the time I had gotten the HSA I thought it was kind of stupid that I didn't have a normal insurance plan, but my employer put most of the money into, which was just fine. I have used the account from time to time for prescriptions, co-pays, and dental work, which has been nice. While I had chemo yesterday I called to get a new card and to find out the balance. To my surprise I have a balance of $3679.10! Talk about another Tender Mercy! I'll use it up towards my medical bills that already feel less since knowing I only have one max out of pocket this year. I love finding extra money when you least expect it, like finding an extra $100 in a purse I haven't used in almost 2 years or realizing there is an envelope in my drawer that I have an extra $400 that I was going to spend on a plane ticket or give away last Christmas. I'm all about a cash stash, HSA's and Tender Mercies!
