I hate health insurance

After seeing that Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois hadn't paid dime one of our last three doctor's appointments (the kids' well child visits and Josh's laceration follow-up), I called them to ask what was up.

After 15 minutes of hold music, this is the answer I'm given:

"Do you have any other health insurance policies? Okay then. We're withholding payment in case you had another policy. But since you don't we'll take care of those bills now."

WTF? I have to prove once a year that I haven't bought an additional policy?!? I can't think of any reason I would want to shell out more for coverage when the good-enough BCBS EPO policy that I have through my company is already costing me $300 a month.
