Kel, You are right about getting your money back once a doctor has it. I will never get mine back from a doctor that did that to me last year "even though it is illegal". They were in-network doctors afterall!! I have been trying to get $900 back for a year now, even had a lawyer contact them, had the insurance contact them and STILL no money!

I commend you for sticking by Regina and not just "going with the flow"! JEAN (from PA)
