Very angry and don't know who to talk with...

Today I found out that the tutoring center I work at had a lot of kids called off so they needed to cut 12 hours from my schedule this week. Money is tight and as much as I understand no kids means no need for teachers - I really needed that money.
I called the pharmarcy to find out if my diabetes medication was ready to be picked up and I was told that my doctor won't authorize the refill. I called the office and the woman who works there told me it was because I owe the doctor money. The doctor YELLED at me that I am wasting his time coming into the office when I am not treating my diabetes but now he is refusing to authorize the medication I need to treat it.
BTW The insurance company has not paid him and I have an outstainding bill of almost 700 dollars. When I talked with the insurance company last I was told that my policy had been cancelled. I attempted to explain that the services were provided before the policy was cancelled and they still owe the doctor the money. They told me the policy was cancelled and that obsolved them of the debt.
Meanwhile my husband needs to replace his CPAP machine but there is a 500 deductable and I doubt our doctor would see him anyway because of the insurance company not paying him in the first place.
This is really bothering me and of course all this is happening on Thanksgiving weekend when the doctor's office and the insurance company are closed for the next 4 days.
I am having a really bad day and wish I could move away somewhere and start all over.
