We have had to pay doc's out of pocket and it's OK (I almost typed FINE) if they can actually help you. Would your doc write an appeal to your HMO for you to be seen out-of-network? We were shocked to find that our PPO did that for my daughter to go out of state and didn't blink an eye at the $775 consult fee. Of course we had to pay up front, then get reimbursed.

Just my two cents worth.
