My once-in-a-while post appearing again.
I did watch some of the DC-matches of the Swiss team against the Czechs, too bad it was to no avail... but the atmosphere in Geneva looked quite well to me. Stan
, I'm away to Geneve for the Davis Cup until Monday evening.
I'll contact you next week about the details for Rotterdam
Talking about Rotterdam:
The bill from the hospital is still keeping me busy
I got it back from my health insurance company as they needed a more detailled list.
I called them and asked why they don't write to the hospital but they said they wouldn't be allowed to do it due to data protection.
So I wrote an e-mail to the hospital but never got an answer apart from the "Thanks for your e-mail. We will get in contact with you within the next 3 days."
I wrote a normal letter to them then but all I got was a dunning letter
I wrote again an e-mail but never got a reply. So I wrote an e-mail to my health insurance company and got a call from the lady there a few days later. Meanwhile I had already decided to call the hospital directly but they were just available weekdays from 9 - 12
That means I had to take overtime hours at work so that I could call the hospital on Monday from home.
It was a bit funny to find the right connection to an employee who was responsible for my concern.
I didn't really understood what the Dutch person said about who I would get in contact with when I click 1, 2, 3 and so on
I clicked the number of which sounded the right one and asked the person I got to talk with if he would speak English or German. He said he would speak a bit German and we talked about everything.
Hopefully I will get the right bill now so that I can give it to my health insurance company...
I was already joking to myself that I just could go to the hospital in 2 weeks and give them the money there and they give me the bill
See you next week
My computer broke down three weeks ago, and I've had a lot of trouble with it, getting a repair done for some 250 euro's, only to find out that eventually, I was forced to buy a complete new system all the same, as apparently the motherboard broke down - I already hinted at that, but damn damn damn the fixers wouldn't listen to me - so ughggg... well there's a complaint file on their way alright.
Damn to see this health insureance business is still a major trouble to you!
Please bring along your Insurance notices when you come to Rotterdam, I would like to have a look at it, as this doesn't sound 'good' at all.
Might there be a personal risk clause included? I know that's the case over here most of the time, but in case of such, they should have informed you right away. Like I said, I'd like to have a look at it. You may well have found yourself ending up in some kind of a Kafka-esque situation....
If necessary, I won't mind a visit to the hospital and ask for detailed information on what's going on. After all, my Dutch is better than yours.
(it's my job nowadays, getting folks out of trouble with insurance companies, bankers, etc. - as far as I'm able to.
Do keep me informed about your travelling plans, and looking forward to meet you and plenty of other nice folks coming week at Rotterdam!
