So you got caught in the 100 mile rule. I'm sure companies love small
states like PA! They rarely have to anti-up under the 100 mile rule.
Which btw states in most insurance policies, that if you can't get services
from one of their member physicians that they will pay a non-member
physician. Some will say an hour drive and then when you show that it takes
more than an hour, they will state that the hour rule applies to mathmatical
calculations, not how long it actually takes you. Cute, huh?
That is a rule that needs to change.
