If you were on your parents policy with the understanding you were a student in college, then yes, they can drop you and refuse to pay. You need to read the terms of the insurance very carefully, somewhere in there it says that the policy is only in effect while you are enrolled as a full time student. You (or your parents) broke this agreement, and the ...

You contracted for the services so the debt is yours. Even if the insurance company were legally obligated to pay, that does not shift the obligation from you to the insurance company. The dentist sues you for non-payment, you have to sue the insurance company for breach of contract to recover what they owe. You certainly can contact the insurance company ...

Had I been informed before the procedure that my insurance wasn't going to cover it, I would have waited until Jan 2019 so that I could use my new insurance provided by my job.

From Wikipedia: An enacting clause, or enacting formula, is a short phrase that introduces the main provisions of a law enacted by a legislature. It usually declares the source from which the law claims to derive its authority. In many countries, an enacting formula is not considered necessary and is simply omitted.

Large companies are not usually going to take a small case to court; the amount they could recover would be far less than assigning a corporate attorney or hiring an attorney local to the customer to file to collect the debt. But large companies often assign or sell the debt to a collection agency; such companies specialize in debt collection and lawsuits ...

The dentist wrote to me that he would remake the crown free of charge. After starting the remaking process, he said his time was free but material was not. He estimated the additional fee to be around $400. But the final fee was more than $1000. An estimate is normally merely a guess, not a binding quotation of a price, so the fact that he estimated ...

By default a new US Federal law is effective as soon as it is enacted. That is, when the President signs it, when the 10 days for approval expire without the President vetoing it, or on the date when the second of the houses of Congress votes to override a veto. However, in modern usage, many, perhaps most, statutes specify as pone of their provisions an ...

No. The bill was passed by the national legislature, and its laws will therefore be enforced by federal agencies, such as the Bureau of Immigration.

In order for a state Chief ...

Under the ACA ("Obamacare"), young people can stay on their parents' insurance plan until age 26, regardless of your student status. (Wikipedia with references) Your list of options for what to do seems to assume that your parents' plan has some other requirement that you be in college. If you have not yet turned 26 (i.e. are 25 or younger) you should ...

You being responsible for the service does not predicate you following through and becoming well again. Even dead people have hospital bills. You did receive a service, you just didn't get the prescription. Was this the hospitals fault? Probably, but they wouldn't be liable to refund your entire visit for that reason. Hospital phone numbers are very easy to ...

You have a contract with your employer's medical insurance, whereby they will cover your expenses from this accident; following the most likely terms of that agreement, you have to cooperate so that they can get money from the other involved parties (the drivers).

Congress and the president control processes such as passport issuance by passing laws, which are subject to judicial review. Within the framework of the three-way checks and balances, therefore, the federal government as a whole is responsible for determining the rules for such a process. The income tax process is also defined by federal laws. Since the ...
