That is sad. Was the cancer caused by chemicals on the property?

Does the insurance write off the rest?  They are supposed to if it’s in your policy.  Dentists are starting to require payment up front,mthen the patient gets back whatever the insurance pays.  They aren’t honoring their agreements to take the amount agreed upon with the insurance company.

I agree 100% with what You said:   
 

ROCKETMAN:  I was hoping that Covid would kick a move to some kind of universal health care into overdrive but it looks like that once in a lifetime opportunity fizzled, leaving the US the lone place in the world where an illness leads to financial ruin.

And the supreme irony is, - bad debt writeoffs are a much bigger number than what it would cost to just bite the bullet and have universal health care.

IIRC, it was far too rare and no sufficient studies to link the cancer to the spill.

I have a vague idea  how it works since we have Medicare and a Supplemental insurance.  Providers bill medicare who determines the amount that is approved.  So doc bills Medicare $100 and Medicare says $50 is approved in the agreement with doc/hospital/lab.  Then Medicare pays 80% or $40.  Supplemental then pays $10.  Docs/labs/hospitals have agreements to accept whatever value Medicare dictates.  In this example, I would be responsible for the $10 if I didn't have Supplemental.  Some docs don't accept Medicare so it is absolutely necessary to be sure to verify that your provider does accept Medicare.   From my personal experience Dental insurance is a complete joke.

Dental insurance used to be good, when it was even offered.

Ive never seen a dental insurance policy from my DHs company that was worth  the time it took to read it.  

Wow. So it was at an Army facility. I wonder how much of that was under gub'mint contract.
