I have been saving religiously in an Emergency Fund, and I am now thankful that I did. This past weekend in Memphis, I had an unfortunate accident and ended up breaking my thumb. (yes, you read that right, my thumb). I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon in the emergency room for a temporary split and made an appointment today to see a orthopedic doctor. I am not sure what this little accident is going to cost me, but I am sure it is not going to be cheap. I already had to pay a $50 co-pay at the ER yesterday.
The worst part is that I am in limbo as far as insurance goes. I am covered but with starting a new job I don't have all the paperwork processed or any insurance cards. I am not sure if I am going to have to pay out-of-pocket and then try to get the insurance company to reimburse me or what.
