what is for insurance for anyway?

what the hell is insurance for? if they won’t pay for the treatment you need? I was even told by someone from the insurance company that sometimes people die because they don’t cover the services they need!!! Like what the hell??? i don’t know anymore. if something doesn’t happen soon, I will become one of the 20% of anorexics who die.

Tired of getting my hopes up

Hi everyone,

So I’m tired of getting my hopes up only to have them – to again. I thought I was going to get to go to Renfrew in Chicago for eating disorder treatment. They recommended the residential program, so I assumed that they had that program at the Chicago location. I later looked at their website only to realize they did not have residential at that location. So even if they did do a single case agreement with my insurance, I would not be able to go as the residential location is in another state. I am done reaching out to people to ask for help only to be told that I can’t be helped or to be told by the insurance company that they’re not going to pay for something. I just wish something positive would happen! I don’t want to end up on the medical floor getting a feeding tube because insurance refuses to pay for the treatment that we need!

insurance denied the authorization

So the insurance company has denied the prior authorization for river oaks in Louisiana. They say that there is not enough clinical information in the authorization for them to approve it. I am going to have to ask my psychiatrist to send in an authorization which is another one for them to approve or deny. If they deny this one, then we don’t have anywhere else to turn. We don’t have anywhere to go if we are not feeling safe at his new place is more except us at all. Spoke to my therapist earlier, and she got frustrated with me because our conversation was more than five minutes long. Also tried calling back a few minutes ago to speak with another case manager, and the receptionist said you know they’re busy they have other clients. I just don’t see how these people got their job to begin with with the abrasiveness of their attitudes.

Good morning

So, how is everyone doing today? We’re doing ok today. Still feeling suicidal though, but we’ll have to make the best of it. Have to fake it till we make it. All I know is that I can’t keep going like this. We’re continuing to lose weight. Not sure how much longer I can keep doing this. I just feel so alone. I could really use a friend. Just feeling really defeated. I want to cut. I’ve never done that before. T’i always been Amilia. Not sure why I want to do it. Does this mean I’m a failure? I hate myself. I don’t want to live. My mood is all over the place. I hate this. I hope this insurance says yes. I really really hope they do.

Long talk with insurance care coordinator

So just had a long talk with the care coordinator whose over behavioral health for my insurance. She told me that residential definitely wasn’t an option, and she also said that if inpatient ED treatment was need that it wasn’t covered either. She’s concerned about the amount of re losing, but the things she could recommend were outpatient. She wants my team to all have a conference call to discuss the future of my treatment. I told her I would do my best to work with them even though they keep blowing us off. She said we needed to focus on the ED right now and the other stuff later. I guess that’s going to have to work for now. Every time something comes up in therapy about dissociation or an alter comes out to talk, my therapist is litterally speechless. I just feel like I’m running into briak walls everywhere we turn. I mean, heck, even my PCP said I wasn’t sick enough for treatment. So if oupatient doesn’t work, we’re screwed. I don’t even know what to say anymore.

INSURANCE WANTS TO JUST THROW ME AWAY NOT ACTUALLY PAY FOR MY TREATMENT!!!

More, my insurance just wants to an intermediate care facility. My care coordinator got a behavioral health coordinator involved in our case, and that person, without even talking to me, decided that my meds needed to be stabalized. My care coordinator called me earlier and told me that this other person had found an inpatient facility that would be really good for me. I asked her what it was called, and she told me it was called Rock River Gardens in Sterling Il. They’re listed as a nursing home on their website. They’re not trauma informed and they don’t have a dietician that comes in regularly. I would only get $60 out of my check a month. My care coordinator is coming to my house on Monday to talk to me. She can’t force me to go to this place!!! I was sexually assaulted at a place like this!!! Not doing it again!!! They don’t have treatment that I need for my issues here in Il, so they want to put me with a bunch of elderly people? I think not!!! Anyone know how I can fight this?
