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 was arrested for "falseley reporting an incident in the

Hi, I was arrested for "falseley reporting an incident in the 2nd degree in NY, class E felony. All I did was call my Mother from my mothers house when she was at the public lake and told her the house was on fire, but then I told her immediateley after that the fire was extinguished, and not to send the fire dept. I didn't tell her to call 911 or the fire dept. She yelled out, Oh, my god, my house is on fire, and her friend nearby called 911 on her behalf. My mother also conveyed to her friend that the fire was extinguished and not to send the fire dept. I believe she told them this over the 911 call. Anyway, I had no malice, criminal intent, or culpability to committ a crime. I wasn't trying to make a false report. I was simply upset with my Mother and it was a cry out for help. I was psychotic at the time this happened, and wound up in the psychiatric ward 3 day's later. I didn't call 911 or the fire dept neither.This seems preposterous to me that I was even charged. I don't believe I should have been charged, but because of small town politics and my rap sheet, no felony convictions, they decided to pursue criminal charges. It seems like a weak case to me. What do you think? do they have enough sufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt all the elements of the crime or not?

My phone accidentally sent a vulgar picture to a girl who I

My phone accidentally sent a vulgar picture to a girl who I do not know on Facebook while in my pocket. Now I'm devastatingly anxious at the possibility that she could be a minor. I have no information on this girl as I don't know her at all. It just randomly sent it to her. She could be 30 she could be 17, either way I'm very worried. What kind of punishment am I facing if this lady is under 18, what punishment do I face if she's over 18 and is pissed that a stranger just sent them a vulgar pic.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I'm in WV. This woman is in FL according to Facebook.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I sent an apology stating that I apologized for accidentally sending her a Message I also requested she delete it. That being said I attempted to delete it myself and according to my facebook she did not see the photo before I deleted it. There's a good possibility that she did not even ever see the photo

I was arrested in Texas for possession of a controlled

I was arrested in Texas for possession of a controlled substance ie: small amount of pot. And 3 grams of hash oil, which is a felony. My lawyer has worked out a deal that I am going to be on probation here in Colorado for 3 years. Now in Colorado I have a legal medical card. The governor has signed in effect that if you are on probation here in Colorado with a medical marijuana card you will be allowed to continue useing medical marijuana. My lawyer in Texas says he doesn't know but that texas is stipulating that I can't use my medical marijuana card. Please let me know if its true that I will be allowed to continue use of my medical marijuana card.
