Am I the only one whose penmanship has gone to shit? Two years and I honestly don't think I could recognize my own from a first grader's scribbles.

Not sure what the right bowl for this is, but healthcare question.

Received services from a healthcare provider that I believe are reasonably classified as routine, preventive care. However, the provider charged for the services as a problem-oriented office visit. Because of the procedure code used, our health plan does not cover the costs of the visit.

Anyone have success contesting the procedure code used in medical billing, and willing to share tips?

Thank you!

I have an offer for PwC DDV but really enjoy the realm of analytics. Wondering if I'm likely to be doing more PM, blueprinting, tech separation work and if this would be a bad career decision given that preference or if there's a way to incorporate decision modeling, forecasting, performance improvement in the group. Background is IT + MBA.

Due to climate change. Doesn’t it make sense to buy a house/land in colder and green areas now instead of e.g. Cali, Fl …
