Even with all our advantages, however, Edmund is costly to us now and always will be. You may be wondering how it could possibly hit the $2.5 million mark. Easy as pie.


即使那全是我们的优势,然而,埃德蒙对我们来说需要很高的费用并且将一直是这样。你可能会感到奇怪花费怎么可能达到250W美元。易如反掌。


First, there are multiple extra expenses. Even though doctor visits are covered, there’s usually a $15 or $30 co-pay. Not a particularly noticeable expense for a healthy kid, but when you’re going to various doctors two or three times a month, that’s usually $50-$100. Some of his therapies are covered by our insurance; however, the physical therapist we believe is best for him is out-of-network. That’s usually another $200 a month out-of-pocket. He is still in diapers and will be for the foreseeable future. That’s another $50 or so a month, plus extra for wipes.


首先,有许多额外的开支,尽管医生问诊包含在内了,但通常只有15-30美元是共同支付。对一个健康的孩子来说并不是特别明显的开支,但当你一个月去不同的医生那里2-3次,那就是50-100美元了。他的一些治疗包含在我们的保险里;然而,我们认为对他最好的理疗是面对面的治疗。那通常是另一个每月200美元的额外支出。他还在用尿布而且预计未来也将一直需要,这是另一个每个月50美元左右的花费,加上额外的纸巾。



Medical equipment is a serious issue—sometimes it’s covered by health insurance, sometimes it’s not. When in the house, Edmund sits in his wheelchair (he’s apt to throw himself out of any typical chair). When he outgrew his toddler car seat, he still needed a seat with a harness, as he is unable to sit in place with just a lap belt. So we upgraded to the Britax Marathon, a cool 230 bucks. He is now outgrowing this.


医疗设备是一个严重的问题,有时是医疗保险负担,有时不是。在家里,埃德蒙坐在轮椅上(他容易从其他椅子上摔下来)。当他开始使用学步车,他仍然需要有安全带的座位,他无法坐在只有腰带的地方。所以我们升级到23的元很酷的BRITAX马拉松。他现在已经不适合这个。
