It's looking more and more likely I will need to see a new therapist who is much further away from home. I have seen the same therapist for 15 yrs and made a lot of progress but due to insurance changes, it is unlikely I will be able to see her again. I'm trying to find reasons to say no to different therapists in hopes that iinsurance will give in, but currently I have someone who can see me and specializes in dissociation -- one of my primary problems. I'm so upset and angry in part at this new therapist since I gave some not so thinly veiled comments that I'm not really interested in seeing her and that I'd like her to just say no to me for some reason or another. Unfortunately, she has the time and expertise. I am worried that I will not be able to drive to her during one of those bouts I have with my neck/arm issues but the insurance doesn't really care about that -- as long as it is within a 10 mile radius it should do, according to them. I am feeling quite a bit of loss at the moment as I didn't even have a cchance to have closure with my current therapist. It was just one day I found out my insurance changed (they neglected to contact me or my therapist) and the next I realized I couldn't return without paying out of pocket. Furthermore, I'm worried I may be accountable for all bills incurred from January through end of April since the insurance is denying any responsibility in this. Am I blowing things up or do I have reason to be upset just a little??? I feel so betrayed by the insurance company. And I'm not too thrilled with the new therapist either.

I feel for you!
Insurance companies are notoriously difficult and laden with frustration.
A relationship with a therapist is an intense and very real thing. You share with her things that you'd never share with anyone else. Of course you'd be upset!!

Thanks MoMo...I was beginning to wonder if I was overly picky or sensitive or something.

If you go to the new therapist, and you decide you don't want to continue, and you tell this to the insurance, would they accept it?

I don't know, Gad. I think I need to have a reason for the insurance -- more than just an "I didn't connect" reason. I'm planning on doing that but there is still another therapist who isn't "cooperating" and much less qualified. How many can I reject due to "not connecting????" There has got to be a limit. I just don't know what it is. And I don't know if it's a qualified argument either.

Maybe you can ask relief or echo or ohel for advice.
Or maybe you can ask dr price if he has advice, or if he can recommend someone (who knows insurance angles)
