We are not doing our own taxes, my brother-in-law Kevin is an accountant so he gets to have most of the fun. This morning I did get the joy of figuring out how much we’ve spent in medical bills this past year. I am a pretty organized person and had been keeping a spreadsheet of most of the payments we made last year, but I still went through several semi-organized folders of bills and statements. Then there’s all of the prescription receipts. Ahhh!!
Thankfully, our insurance website has a list of every amount that was the “member responsibility” and what our portion was of every prescription filled in 2010.
We can also claim $.16/mile for trips to and from the doctor. So I figured I’ve made approximately 98 trips back and forth to Cox South in 2010. That’s an average of one trip every 3.7 days. They should let me claim $.16/ every minute I’ve had to wait in a waiting room!
