Good News and Bad News

Well, the good news is that I've got two years to pay off my hospital bill. The bad news is that they're not giving me a single friggin' discount.

I sent them a letter a few weeks back, basically stating that while a complete wipe of the bill would certainly not be argued with, I'm not asking for that. I'm asking to be billed what an insurance company would pay, which is usually about 20-30% less than what's originally billed. Does anybody know anybody at any insurance companies that I could fax this to just to see what they'd pay, just for kicks? I'm not insured, otherwise I'd send it to mine.

So the good news is that I'll only have to pay $90/month for the next 24 months, which is a little bit more manageable. But it still annoys the hell out of me that I'm not getting a single discount while if an insurance company were to pay them 70% of what they were billed, they'd just write it off.
