Can't find a psychistrist on United Health Care

Posted by Jakeman on December 2, 2005, at 20:54:06

I've called 10 (out of about 25) so far on my directory. They are either: booked till late Feb., no longer taking insurance, retired or no longer accepting patients. I ruled out two on the list due to unfavorable references.

I called United Behavior Health. They admitted there was a shortage of pdocs in my town. (There are over a hundred in the phone book). One suggestion they gave was to go to Houston, 250 miles away.

I got several comments from the pdoc offices along the lines that that are giving up on dealing with insurance companies due to various hassles. One thing I found out is that UHC will not pay them their regular fee. I questioned UHC in particular about one doctor, referred by my neurologist. The response from the insurance rep was "she will not accomodate us".

I'm looking at ordering meds online or seeing if the County mental health clinic will help.

warm regards ~Jake
