Medical Insurance Companies Have Run Amock...Time for a Single Payer Smack down

Insurance companies are out of control. The health system is so out of wack and the insurance companies have no fear of reprisal.  They are in need of a single payer smack down. 

When I got into my office this morning I was informed by my office manager that an insurance company had called and was requesting a refund for overpayment for patients that were seen in the office in 2005-2006.
I was pretty angry until I started to think about it.  It dawned on me that I had received a letter from a different insurance company asking for reimbursement for surgery that was done in Sept 2008. It turns out they had only partially paid me for the surgery that I had done. Now they were asking for a reimbursement?  That would mean that I would be paying THEM for the privilege of operating on their patient.
