With my insurance, virtually anything can be appealed, if someone's willing to attempt it and it appears like an exception to the rule to the docs at the insurance co.

I doubt your insurance would favor having to pay for repeat hospitalizations and multiple ECT treatments if Cymbalta might help you. A lot of these policies are made for the typical case, and the last thing you want to believe is that your case is typical. Letter writing is worth the effort, especially with a doc's note explaining the circumstances.

You really should up the dose of Zoloft, and I'm not trying to play doctor, but I would say call your doc tomorrow morning if you're not seeing him in the next few days. You should be at 200mg ASAP, my doc would make it increased over a week's time if it were up to him. It lets your doc focus on other concerns at the appointment, too.

And Lithium added to an antidepressant is really helpful.
