Is this the year of the Strep Throat, or what?! Strep has hit my house 16 times in the last 6 months!!!!! Check out this breakdown... (Yeah, our insurance stinks.) Our out of pocket expenses, after insurance has been filed: Me: 3 times...$220 DH: 3 times...$180 DS12: 3 times...$500 DD11: 6 times...$600 DD6: 1 time...$100 (I think she's the carrier...never shows any symptoms, but I've noticed some grouchiness and/or minor upset stomach every time someone else gets it. Finally decided to get her tested last time DD11 got it and, sure enough, she had it!) 16 times, for a grand total of about $1,600 out of pocket...not to mention cost for antibiotic, which has ranged from $7 to $100 for all the various kinds!
