I post this sitting here waiting on a friend that is running late so as soon as they arrive we are off for the week but I figured I'd share this now while I have the chance in the hopes that others may be able to do the same and utilize a benifit that they are already paying for. My darling bride is a detail nut, and recently this habit of hers has paid us off quite well. Out medical insurance provider has a line in the policy that states that they will reimburse us the cost of a first aid kit. Now this of course drew raised eyebrows from us as we figured they had in mind some sort of pocket sized thing found on the impulse rack at your local pharmacist so we called to inquire. Our providers agent informed us that if it was in fact a first aid kit and was invoiced as a first aid kit then it qualified. Using that information I found a first aid kit assembled into a Pelican 1550 EMS case, forwarded the link to our agents email address to which she again answered that since the item in question is sold as a first aid kit, they would happily reimburse us.
The link to the first aid kit we found.
Eleven business days after receiving our first aid kit we received our reimbursement from our insurance provider to cover the purchase price of the kit itself. Luckily for us we had spoken to the business owner and she offered us free shipping as a form of a military discount so all in all our first aid kit cost us nothing out of pocket. Our medical insurance provider is United Health Care via the federal employees program. Now sorting through the included inventory on the sellers website list an impressive array of supplies that while not what most would consider to be a complete first aid kit it certainly is an excellent start and all neatly packed into an excellent storage case. Being laymen as it were we would of course welcome suggestions on what to add to the kit to round it out a bit so fire away with any suggestions that you may have.
