Dear Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois,
Let me get this straight.
You would rather pay to care for a child who contracts whooping cough or polio than pay for her vaccines through the end of 2008? I understand the odds are slim, but this is a child, not a number.
You'll get your $458 from me when I have it.
Perhaps I'll pay you after the first of the year when Shirley goes in to have her next round--instead of next week like she was previously scheduled.
