Nevermind dealing with the Insurance Co. execs and their "brother-in-law" who owns the "in network" supply  company; contact Disetronic.  Let them know what is 
happening and that you want to deal with them directly.  They will assist you by getting themselves onto the "in network" list.   Don't know who they'll have to marry, but I 
could send you some 12 guage buckshot if you need more ammo!     ;>)
