Good Day- I will make this short as possible. After 15 years of drinking i finally get in to therapy, it is going well and am learning a ton.One problem, my insurance calls me to say i need approval to continue??? These damn HMO's... WTF??? All about the dollar. So they want me to go to their "counselor" to decide if I need to continue, someone I have never spoken too?? It takes time to open up. I feel like just throwing in the towel on this therapy thing. But I know it helps.

Work is a monster, bunch of lazy a holes that do not want to work well most anyway. And the good ones get crapped on.....same old stuff.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

hi Zack, i know my last insurance company gave me 3 free visits, then i had to pay thereafter about $60 per visit....alot of insurance companies don't pay anything for self help, it all depends on who you have insurance with and how much it will cost. I do know if you see a therapist and pay cash on your own, they usually cut you a break on the price.

Good luck & keep up the good work with therapy!

I know what you mean zack. I thought about the same thing...about how if you lived off the system and had medicaid - that everything is paid for. I have a relative that gets SSI payments, dental, food stamps etc....and she's republican to boot!!!! (Go Figure!!!!)

Anyway, I say - just play along with the system and try to figure out what this new "counselor" needs to hear/confirm from you in order to get the OK to continue to get your well needed therapy....don't throw in that towel just yet!!!!!

Maybe even try and do a little research on the side about insurance comapnies and what "specific conditions" warrant inclusion and continued coverage as far as treatment is concerned.

Anyway - BIG Congrats on your sobriety!!!!!
