Crashing out

Dying is not cheap.
Just got the MediCare copy of Wash's bills since he started Hospice (We have at most a $5 out of pocket co-pay for some things, Hospice bills MediCare directly for the rest)
So, I've shelled out about $1000.00 in out of pocket/uncovered expenses for Wash's meds per month.
Of the covered /paid by insurance stuff;
From mid January when he went on service to end of April, MediCare has now paid $21,210.42 for Hospice services.

Even dying at home with Palliative care ain't cheap.

/Yes, I'm glad we're 95% covered, but it's still amazing.
