John Oxendine has been ripping off Georgian's and medical providers for the last few years...and we did not even know it. There is a conflict of interest in Mr. Oxendine's office, it's him, his wife is an executive at Blue Cross Blue Shield, an insurance company in Georgia....and he is letting the rob poor innocent citizens and deprive medical providers of money that is due for services rendered. Mr. Oxendixe's office is looking the other way and letting BCBS pay only pennies on the dollar for quality health care to out of network providers that refuse to contract with BCBS because of their poor payment system. If it was another insurance company his office has been agressive in enforcing Georgia law. Blue Cross is even requesting money from patients for services they paid. While our health insurance premiums are rising....I have BCBS and my insurance increased over a $100 per month this year...they are reducing what they are willing to pay. Don't get hit with $12,000 dollar bill for services they will only pay $600 to the provider.

John Oxendine is a hard working, dedicated individual who I have had the pleasure of getting to know prior to his political life. We graduated from Mercer University in the same graduating class, and were members of the same Fraternity. There was never an instance where I recognized John as being anything other than positive and helpful.
The old axiom "if things aren't going your way, find someone to blame" seems to hold true at all levels of government. I am really dissappointed to hear people lower themselves to attack the character of someone who I know as being more caring, helpful and altruistic than most any other person in state government!

Wonder if he will run the state as he did the gas pumps in Camden County. He may not have done it but he was the boss.

I wonder how much Oxendine paid Tom B from Fayetteville GA to write that load of claptrap. Tom B should send me an e mail to searcher1068@yahoo.com and I will tell him a few things about his mate. I don't doubt that Oxendine is hard working and dedicated, to his selfaggrandizement, and that is where it ends.
As for this, I am really dissappointed to hear people lower themselves to attack the character of someone who I know as being more caring, helpful and altruistic than most any other person in state government, excuse me while I go from hysterical laughter to nausea.
The comment above is purely for Tom B, the following is based my personal experience with Oxendine, proof of which is readily available and can be provided to Tom B, unless like many others, he doesn't want to be confused with facts as he has already made up his mind
My views on Oxendine
I have just read your article about Oxendine running for Governor.
It is always good to have accomplished liars in political office and the higher the office, the more accomplished a liar should be the occupant, and Mr. Oxendine meets the criteria admirably.
I have documentation proving Oxendine is a liar and really nothing more than a self aggrandizing publicity seeker who, when caught in a lie, blusters on and is able to avoid prosecution for defamation ( I use defamation because he committed both libel and slander, and I do know the difference). Oxendine's lies, negligence and publicity seeking resulted in the destruction of a business, 2 reputations, 2 weeks unjustified inprisonment for an innocent party, the threat of extradition to Georgia for another innocent party and the loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars and there is still more, but then, who really cares in the land of Liberty and Justice for some?
I could tell you the whole story, but the media tends to "cow tow" to people like him because he has so much power.

I hope that you read my comments on Oxendine Tom B
Maybe you graduated with someone else with the same name, can't be the Oxendine I had dealings with
