Does this make sense? - Bummer Knees - 04-19-2010 09:45 AM
I have a court order dated April 1st, authorizing a return visit to the knee surgeon, payment for mileage, and payment for medical bills to a local hospital.
I called the doctor's office and the insurance company has authorized payment for the doctor visit.
I have not received payment for mileage, and the hospital has not been paid for the bills owed.
I visited with attorney Friday and he has filed for a penalty against the insurance company.
My question is: Is it common for the insurance company to comply with one part of a court order and ignore the other parts?
Is there a reason for them to do this?

Paper work required sometimes is slow, between hospital and such and back to IC.
