So far we have won every appeal, but it takes months . . . and months. That means that I still have several appeals in process. I won't know how they go for some time.

Well in albaby's defense, he did suggest that if enough (what, tens of thousands?) people complained then the insurer would change its ways.

Because I live in a state with a brain-dead tea-bagger GOP legislature and governor, my state appeals go to an agency that is not really very helpful or much of an advocate for the consumer.

Much like Dick Cheney was an oil industry shill who found his way all the way to the White House, state insurance commissioners are usually from the industry and there's only as little consumer advocacy as there needs to be to keep the governor happy.
