I received a payment for ~ $600.00 from my health insurance

I received a payment for ~ $600.00 from my health insurance provider for services received from a non-participating provider. The check, as per their policy agreement, was made specifically to me, which I deposited and I am responsible for payment to the non-participating provider. I am now being threatened with insurance fraud because I haven't as of yet payed the non-participating provider. However, in my policy agreement that I signed with my California health insurance provider, there is NO time frame specified that I have to remit the payment to the non-participating provider, which has been about 24 months now. I am being threatened with the revocation of my insurance policy and fraud. How am I guilty of fraud, which was in the complaint that the non-participating provider filed with my California health insurance provider??Thank you.

I recently met up with a guy at a party who got me screwed

I recently met up with a guy at a party who got me screwed up on crystal meth. He told me he knew how to cook it and that we should go get the stuff to make it. We did, and I paid for some of the things that he used. He is now, for the lack of a better term, blackmailing me to buy more precursors, food and cigarettes. He has been feeding me this elaborate story of someone trying to set him up. He told me to bring him something just a little while ago, then once I was home texted me to tell me that I shouldn't have brought that, the police will go through his dumpster and he will be arrested on precursor possession charges and that I need to be prepared to go post a very large bond. What can I do? I know I am in a legal pickle right now.

I'm currently facing cocaine possession charges, but it was

I'm currently facing cocaine possession charges, but it was inside a backpack that wasn't mine, inside my car. The backpack was in the passenger seat. The car is mine. No one else was in the vehicle at the time of arrest, although people were in and out of my car a lot during a vacation. Should I fight these charges and plea not guilty, or take a 15day plea bargain?

I did a plea bargain so not to be sentenced for 25 to life

I did a plea bargain so not to be sentenced for 25 to life as I was told. Unfortunately I did 9 years for 290 case. I have a woman that I have become involved with with permission from parole that knows everything about me. Her neighbors looked me up and found out about my past and turned me into parole by calling the local authorities, even though I had been given permission, but it was to not be in the house if girlfriends son came in house. He would come and go to the bathroom then run outside again. I did not go out every time he came in and neighbors turned me in because of the well being of the child. I was violated and I am now being told that I cannot see her at ALL and must break it off with her, but we are engaged. I understand I don't have any rights while on parole, but isn't this a breach of her civil rights? Can anything be done at all? I love her and want to marry her.

Last academic year I had a friend who was a senior in the

Hi, last academic year I had a friend who was a senior in the business school and as a result I waited outside the business school on almost a weekday daily basis. Towards the end of the school year a girl whom I did not know came up to me and made small talk asking me what my name was and if I was a business student myself since she always saw me around there. I told her no, that it was my friend who was in the business school, but I didn't think much of the conversation. School just resumed this week and yesterday this same girl and her friend bump into me and say hi and make small talk again. However, this time she says that a couple days ago she saw me at our campus center, that I was there for like 20 minutes with no apparent place to go before picking up a newspaper. Now this place is our food court and main socializing hub, which is why I was killing time there to see if anyone that I knew strolled by. She says that she was also there and why am I following her around and what's the deal. I politely try to explain that she is mistaken. Her friend ends ther conversation saying that they wanted to talk to me because perhaps this was just a misunderstanding but that if her friend continued to feel uncomfortable they would take further action. Just as a side note, I don't like wearing glasses and don't own any contacts because they irritated my eyes and I have worse than 20/200 vision. So what she's claiming about the campus center is physically impossible for me to know because a face more than 10-15 feet is not possible for me to make out; it would be the equivalent of seeing through a wall for me. It's a fairly small campus so I'm bound to bump into her at some point even if I don't notice her and since I commute I get to campus early and leave late to avoid traffic and I like to walk around campus. This is causing me great emotional distress because now I'm paranoid whenever I'm on campus seeing if she's anywhere around. It's only the start of the school year and I can't go like this for 10 or more months it's too much distress for me. Hopefully this was te end of it, but if she decides to take this further will they listen to her, or will it be obvious that she's just disturbed and looking for attention? This is probably irrelevant, but she is very unattractive, so it couldn't be further from the truth.Thanks

My truck was supposed to be fixed by someone not far from my house. After 44 days I left him a note telling to him to fix the truck or let me know what was going on. I put the note in his mailbox and now I have a paper in my truck basically threatening since I put the note in his mailbox. He owes me for the repairs since he did not fix the truck, long story--. I want to file in small claims for my damages, but what do I do about the mailbox thing?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: Wisconsin, 2003JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, I've spent over 4500 between him and someone else to fix it and I am thoroughly disgusted. He basically threatened us when we picked it up todayJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: He "fixed" it, then it broke down on me two weeks later, we took it to a ford dealer to have it fixed for real. I want him to reimburse me. He said it was fixed, it wasn't. He also knew I would be hauling a trailer with animals and my kids in the truck. Now I have this mailbox this hanging over my head. Do I file against him>

I made my husband move out in June due to drug use. He was living out of his vehicle, which is in my name only. As way to get more drugs, he let a drug dealer borrow his truck, but now the dealer will not return the vehicle. I tried to report the truck as stolen, but the police say it is a civil matter, not a criminal matter. I only have a street name and a phone number for the dealer, so I can not file a 10 day demand letter. What can I do to get the truck back? I don't want to keep paying for a truck that I don't have. So what options do I have in protecting myself from further damage from my husband?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: Texas, the truck is a 2008, which I just got in January.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: no, just trying to figure out what direction to goJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I haven't called the insurance company or the dealership.
