Re: I thought posting Ms. Burdick's Phone number might be more effective

I disagree. She's asserting that they are following the policy rider they issued. This is a legal issue, not one where a few phone calls will tip the scales in your favor.

I'm curious to see whether they actually *are* following their wording. Because if they *aren't*? THAT has the potential to a) be actionable and b) make them take care of it in a hurry lest they look very bad, very publicly.

If there is a conflict between a letter and a printed rider contract, the letter also ~might~ legally override the contract. (IIRC from my business law course, wording that is thought to be newer is given more weight; thus typed changes override preprinted ones and handwritten changes override typed ones.)

Since it had to cover a period of more than one year, whatever was stated has to be in writing; any conflicting information that you might have been told (orally) would not count.

Do you see where I'm going with this? (And it doesn't mean there IS a conflict between what the letter/contract says and what she has stated, in which case you are probably SOL, but it's worth checking.)

Can you SUE an HMO or PPO?

LOL, maybe for breach of contract or something and yes, I understand exactly what you are saying but how stupid do thing have to get?

How Ironic would it be if I needed to hire another attorney?

You don't really need me to answer that, do you? :)
