I Believe This Is Unprecedented in Today's U.S. Healthcare Environment

I got a check in the mail from my doctor's office, along with a statement that I had been overcharged. Further, this was after my insurance paid for the full visit. They refunded me my co-pay.

Huh. I'm almost afraid to cash it.

All I have in mind is the image of some irate patient storming the doctor's office in "health care cost" rage and holding the doctor at knifepoint as he directs the receptionist to start refunding all the patients in the database. "Yeah, now hit that tab, and now enter...slowly! slowly! I told you no sudden movements! Okay, now put the check in the envelope and send it off and no one gets hurt."

It was you, wasn't it?

Well, I feel sleepy enough to have pulled a Tyler Durden on this one, so I can't say 100% that it wasn't me.
