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.

Thought I may have been driving behind you today near Dulles Airport. The license tag said "Gun Grl", but then I realized it was a Virginia license....couldn't be Rocky.

Ha, Ginny, I'm really not the confrontational type - I just refuse to be walked on.

I'm a nice person most of the time! Honest!

If you haven't already done so, enlist the assistance of the billing department for the urgent care place, too. They can sometimes tweak things, or argue for you.

Good advice, ~~Silk.
