Points for reading articles???

Friday, October 04, 2013

Anyone else out there having trouble getting points for reading articles? I pull up articles to read and there doesn't seem to be the "click" button to get your 5 points.

Well, my DH and I went to the Hospital and met with a really nice woman who listened to our complaint about the large bill and doing so many tests that weren't necessary. She said she was going to file a dispute and also told us that they do not report to credit agencies. Anyway, we will see what happens with that but she lead us to believe that the charges were outrageous. Fingers crossed.

Then my DH and I powered through the rest of Breaking Bad and watched the final. Kind of glad we are done with that and through every thing.

I see sun today so will try and get out for a walk.
Hope you all have a great day.

    Well done challenging the bill. Glad you found someone who agreed with you and wants to help. Such people are few and far between here in Albania, tho I have found some and thank God for them

    Just read an article reminding people to read the details of expense after hospitalization... When I was in the hospital for surgeries a few years ago I received NO detailed report with items listed; the bill only showed general descriptions that could have been anything: ie "medicines" with a huge amount, etc. I was so sick that I couldn't fight it, ended up paying for a few years before selling my house and using some of the proceeds to pay offthe remainder.

    From others' responses it appears the points button may have been a tech problem earlier in the day; hope it's working now?? (works for me, but I didn't get on the computer til 10pm...) Since you're thinking of the buttons, maybe this is a good time to rest articles, etc. if you've not done it for a while.

    Good luck on the disputed bill. I have not experienced a problem with the articles but with the two new items - skinny jeans and food fitness one.

    Had that happen and still did not get points because they did not put a button on the article for the point.

    Glad you receive some help at the hospital. Do you have any idea how many hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent and written off on illegals and citizens that go to the ER. They just say they have no insurance, no money, and refuse to sign anything that requires them to pay. I had a daughter-in-law that manages her hospital's unpaid bills. The Dr. cannot refuse to treat for fear of lawsuits and the hospitals cannot force you to pay. That is why I always laugh when they say how many people do not get health care. Upstanding people do struggle because they think they are supposed to pay their bills, but that atmosphere is disappearing quickly in this country.

    I'm glad you are disputing that outrageous hospital bill.
    I'm like the previous poster-
    no problem getting pts for articles but cannot access the two new challenges at the bottom of the sp-point list.
    Enjoy the sun while it shines.

    Good luck with the disputed charges. It takes awhile, but they generally count on people giving up! Don't give up the fight!

    I do hope you can get things resolved with the hospital bill--that is beyond ridiculous, even for the US! Not sure what the issue is with the buttons, it's all working fine for me this morning. You should have reasonably good weather through at least the weekend, so hopefully you can get in some nice walks in the area.

    Go onto - there was a story last week on the evening niews about overcharges by hospitals and it is well worth checking your bills and disputing anything that may look off to you. It may give you some tips

    The points for articles links haven't worked all morning. Darn! I have found a couple of Blogs that gave me points for articles - weird.

    Here's to hoping the hospital writes off that egregious bill!!

    It may be your browser or ad blocker. I'm in Firefox and have no problem with the article but can't get to the daily "skinny jeans" one because of the ad blocker.
