Here is a letter about a true story from one of our clients to remind us to avoid the ambulance if it’s not necessary. This is especially important if you have a high deductible health plan.
One afternoon day last December, our 5 year old son complained of not feeling well. Within a few hours he spiked a high fever and had a frightening seizure that lasted nearly 5 minutes. He has never had a seizure before or since, so naturally, this was a very scary and unexpected moment. My wife frantically tried to call me when it happened, but I was on a phone call at work and I missed her call. When I saw she was trying to call me a second time, I knew there was an emergency and quickly hung up and tried to call her back, but she didn’t answer. Not knowing what was going on, I decided to go home right away.
