I could always publish my EOB as a found Novel...

I have been in treatment for cancer for a very long time now, as I have discussed earlier in answers on the green. This is not a cancer question, however, but an insurance paperwork question: specifically, do I need to keep it all?

After 10 years in and out of treatment, I have collected enough Explanations of Benefits from several insurance companies that I can only measure them in the way that library archivists do: in square feet. Some of the EOB's are ten years old, or older. They are for treatments that I no longer do, and for doctors that I no longer see, in a state where I no longer live.
So my question is, is it a good idea to continue to store these papers, or do I take them to the next industrial shredding day at my bank, and relish in my new found shelf space?
