You can take your village and...

Slow news day. Y'all are the kindest mean girl I know!

True, dat. I've done a little work in a medical billing office, and SCHIP is the worst, least-likely-to-get-paid of all the frelling programs. Y'see, the parents have to register the child through SCHIP, and if they don't, the doctors are ood-scray. The hospital LOVES it, because they get their cut whether the mother registers the child or not. One mother actually said she wouldn't register because she didn't want it covered through schip - she wanted medicaid because she didn't want to pay the $25 schip co-pay. SCHIP is a nightmare for the doctors who are actually providing the coverage.

Thank-you thank you thankyou, and I thought my 2-year "experiment" with Blue Cross sucked bad.
