oldschool CxC

Well, since no one wants to contribute or comment or rant lately (maybe we're all watching world cup football (oops, soccer)), I'll tell you a funny story that happened to me.

Back in March, I did emergency surgery on a lady after hours and she recovered after a short stay in the hospital. She was a "cash" patient (which means no insurance). I saw her a couple of times post-op and just last week, I saw her for the final time. Of course, she had yet to settle up things, and she told my biller the following (somewhat paraphrased):

"I don't qualify for Medi-Cal, I don't have any money, and I'm not going to pay you."

Isn't that funny?
