SERIOUSLY? . . .
On Tuesday, I received a letter from my health insurance agency -- CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield -- that contained a cover letter, the check for my June payment and a copy of the receipt I included with the check. The sender is identified as "CC00679." Here is part of the letter that explains why the check was sent back to me:
I had forgotten to write my group number along with subgroup number on the check memo "line":
WHAT? NO GROUP NUMBER?!
Here is a copy of the receipt I included with my check that CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield copied and sent back to me:
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE GROUP NUMBER IS ON THE RECEIPT
CAREFIRST BLUECROSS BLUESHIELD SENT BACK TO ME.
APPARENTLY, "CC00679" IS NOT PERMITTED
TO ADD THAT TO THE CHECK MEMO LINE.
You see how much I pay a month for health insurance; healthy insurance that does not cover the additional cost of a 3-D mammography every year. How much did it cost in time and postage for CareLast BlueCrass BlueBalls to send me this letter?
WHAT'S A PERFECT RESPONSE?
