FIREMED... totally not crochet or knitting... but I have to...

Well, as we all know... LIFE HAPPENS...
I had a severe allergic reaction to Macrobid this last week and ended up in an ambulance in anaphylactic shock, BP was 87/42 by the time we got to the hospital, Hives all over my body and more, won't gross you out, But it was bad, I could have died had my daughter not dialed 911. Well... I got the Ambulance bill ... for less than a 2 mile ride it was $1,196.50!!!

Fire-Med is $55.00 per year. If you do not have it GET IT!!! It covers the whole household for that $55.00, no deductibles, no nothing, if you have it your covered.

Here is a link to the website for it... http://firemed.org/. At $55.00 per year even if you only used it 1 time in 21 yrs, it pays for itself!!! If you use it more than that.. it really pays for itself. Please, please, please go check it out, it may save you or a family members life (or checkbook)someday! I am posting a copy (with all personal info blocked out of course) of the bill. Unreal, really... please check out their website to see if it is in your area.

  1. Micki, we had to call the ambulance twice for our son and once for me. We did not have any coverage. We went and thanked the ambulance crew for their help with our son, who was having an asthmatic attack. Anyway, while visiting, I mentined that our insurance did not cover the bill and immediately they became concerned and deeply discounted our bill. They said they did not want to create a situation whereby people would hesitate calling an ambulance for fear of a large bill. So you may want to check with the ambulance service. Express your concern over the amount and that you have no covereage and see if they make adjustments. Good luck. Anaphylactic shock is scary. I had it once in response to allergy shots. Since I had an epi pen, it was stopped pretty fast and I did not get as sick as you describe. Praise God youare still with us!
