the therapist's office called. medicare won't cover the therapist because she is not a psychologist. then the lady tells me i can call medicare and get a list of covered psychologists.
no i can't. i spent the better part of last week on the phone with medicare, i've been all through the phone system and there is nothing about getting providers names.
i'm going to try the mymedicare.gov site and see if i can get the information there.
i'm discouraged once again. worst case scenario is i wait until july when i get other insurance and only see a therapist once a month, which isn't worth it but i'll do it. maybe the insurance will be as good as the prescription and dental benefits are. it just isn't something doc can casually bring up in conversation . . . "so, my wife is a lunatic, how are the mental health benefits?" no, i don't see that happening. we'll wait until july to find out.
i should be angrier, but frankly, i expected this. or something like it. it's always something.
i need to apply for state aid. maybe medicaid would cover the therapist.
