Hey. I replied in the KPMG bowl. If you have any more questions about my experience feel free to dm me. The billing process was a nightmare.

like

Yeah it’s pretty bad. The billing company messed up my bill and I spent over 8 total hours over on the phone with them trying to fix it. It was horrible! I kept getting notices my insurance was being dropped and I was like wtf i will pay you whatever just tell me how much and how and they weren’t able to figure out even how much my premiums were for weeks. Insanity.
