> I have recently been looking for a good Doctor after years of inferior treatment. I have found that the better doctors are not only more expensive (that is to be expected) but they are also unwilling to take insurance. I'm wondering why this is so. Is it just that they don't want to deal with the extra paper work?Or is there some more compelling reason? It seems a shame that decent psychiatric treatment should be accessible only to those who have the money.

I haven't had this exact problem, but boy am I
pissed off at my insurance company. Isn't it
bad enough that one's medical record will forever
show a history of "mental illness" and then they
don't pay squat on your bill? Crooks, all of them,
making money off of peoples ill fortune and then
selling the data to marketing/risk assessment
firms on the side. But mostly I feel the hurt of
discrimination. Yup, pure KKK-grade ignorance
and bias, and tragically enough, probably fatal
in many cases.

Can you say mis-Managed Care? I knew you could...
