A friend of mine won that battle

He is rather well off and pays everything in cash (or silver/gold). He smashed his foot when a trailer came off the hitch. Went in and asked them to take as many x-rays as it took to find the problem. After that he wanted them to do whatever surgery or reparation work was necessary, shoot in a local and stitch it up.

They asked the insurance question and he started laying Grants on the counter. They kept laughing until he got to about $1k, then the doctor took him aside and they settled on a measly $125 (no IV, no crutches, no aspirin and no $20 special wraps).

Out in 20 minutes with no further info, no further aid was needed but he got 3 follow up calls just to check how it was doing.
