  • What To Do

  • Help me understand insurance, please
  • by MnFamily Last comment: Yesterday at 09:58 AM
  • It should because as far as your primary insurance in concerned you did pay it (their transaction stops with what they pay how you pay it is not really their problem), and without medicaid you would be responsible for it.
