I fought the law
So! I am currently arguing with my health insurance provider over who is going to pay for my recent urgent care visit. The whole thing is just so ridiculous: The insurance company says that according to their billing department, the urgent care place is a "non-participating provider". Which is interesting, because the SAME GROUP who runs the urgent care facility I visited also employs my primary care physician, and also runs other urgent care facilities which *are* participating providers. The SAME DOCTORS staff both "participating" and "non-participating" facilities, and I call bullsh*t.
GOD, this kind of crap makes my blood boil.
Maaaan, I should have been a lawyer, because once I get ahold of something like this, I'm like a dog with a damn bone. I will argue this mo-fo all day long. I've taken claims that I should have lost and won them, just because the other side got so damn tired of fighting with me.
Will I win this one? I do not know. But you bet your butt I'm gonna try.
