I am disabled with mental health issues plus more, but when I tried to obtain mental health services my secondary insurance (Medicaid) would not pay. It took 2 months to get any response on the matter from the Dept. of Human Services here in GA. They said they do not cover mental health services for adults. WHAT? Why was I able to obtain them for several years prior? How is that even possible?
My pain doctor is requiring a letter stating why I need my panic meds in order to continue to get pain meds, my general doctor refused to do this letter and took my meds from me. After two weeks of hell, my general doctor agreed to help me with the meds, but not the letter, until I can be seen by a psychiatrist. I have an appointment on the 27th with a psychiatrist. I have no way to pay $40 every time I go to the psychiatrist, but I also won’t survive without both my panic meds and my pain meds. I honestly don’t know how I have not ended my life yet. Oh wait, yes I do, I am too much of a pussy to kill myself!
I told the Medicaid office that the federal government passed a law last year stating that Mental Health Services have to be covered. There are limits, but I can work with 20 visits a year. I supposed it will be another 2 months before I hear back on that. You can NEVER get through on the phone.
I haven’t had a running vehicle in 2 years, have not had a working oven in over a year and a half, my coffee maker died yesterday, my dryer is on its last leg and I barely survive every month. I literally have nothing left from the $813 a month I get, after I pay the mortgage & house bills. I am supposed to be seeing a psychiatrist and a counselor…
I GIVE UP!!! I can’t take this hell storm anymore. I have tried everything, everywhere and this state sucks. There is nothing out there to help me………….
