K so I called my nurse and she told me she didn't have any power with the billing stuff but she got the girl from the billing department to call me back. She to didn't have much leeway either cause the office she worked at wasn't the main office.
Anyway she gave me the address to the main billing office and said that they have a financial committee that deals with issues like the one that I'm in. She told me to write them a letter about my situation and they will be able to decide if I can have the go ahead for the takedown.
So I wrote a 4 page letter to them telling them about my financial situation and what not.

The main office is in downtown Atlanta. Hopefully I will get an answer sometime next week.

EDIT:
Whee more good news (hopefully I've had a bad day). Week before last I was trying to get hired on at my previous employer, but in a new department. Well turns out they put the job on hold and took it off the website. And the recruiter said that they may have the job on hold until first of next year.
Well I just checked the site and the job is back up on the website. To bad it is Friday and the recruiter already went home and she isn't back in until Monday.

that is great, I think one page would have been sufficient though :). I hope that all works out for you and I am sure it will.

Yea probably, lol. Oh well this is the way I got my HOPE grant back after I lost it. They gave me some form with about 4 lines for you to explain why you lost HOPE in the first place and I ended up writing a whole page. Couple of days later they said that I got the grant back.

Plus I figured a 4 page hand written letter would show the committee that I really want the takedown surgery.
