This is all so unfortunate, and from the sounds of it, you couldn't drop this even if you wanted to. I think it's too big an issue.

What's really disappointing is his avoidance of the issue and use of what sounded like a threat. I think I wrote earlier that I had to work through pretty much the same issue with my T. (I wonder how many Ts ignore the terms of their provider contracts and simply bill the difference between their regular non-provider hourly rate and the insurance reimbursement) Ultimately she got fed up with dealing with my insurance company and she dropped them. I think it affected very few patients other than me. She discussed it with me fully before she did it and I was totally supportive because my insurer didn't require that I see someone in their network. So I continued to be reimbursed and the difference in cost was pretty minor. It meant I had to submit my own claims but the counterbalance was that I didn't have to listen to my T complain anymore about how difficult it was for her to get claims processed.

I hope this works out for you. He should be able to work through this conflict with you in a forthright and honorable way. If he can't, maybe he's not worth seeing.
